Match Report: RCD Mallorca 0-0 Deportivo Alavés

The points are shared at the Estadi Mallorca Son Moix

We were held to a hard-fought goalless draw against Deportivo Alavés at the Estadi Mallorca Son Moix as our search for a first home win continues.  

Aguirre opted to include Amath on the wing to give us some pace out wide as he was joined by Antonio Sánchez and Abdón in offence. 

The visitors had the game’s first opportunity as a defelcted cross hit the top of our cross bar before the second ball was fired over the bar in the 17th minute. 

We were reduced to half chances in the first half as both sides struggled to create anything of note in the final third. 

Sergi Darder almost gave us the lead when his quick thinking lead to a shot at goal, but his half volley was well saved in the 50th minute. 

Substitute Cyle Larin was next to try his luck when a fantastic run in behind led to him going through on goal, but his attempt was blocked by the on-rushing goalkeeper on the hour mark. 

The forward continued to cause problems with his runs and almost got lucky with a lob in the 79th minute, but his shot was tipped away as we had to settle for a point despite a much improved second half.
