Spain round-up: Record run boosts Mallorca

RCD Mallorca secured a club record sixth consecutive Primera División win.

RCD Mallorca secured a club record sixth consecutive Primera División win on Sunday to move into the top three behind Real Sociedad and Valencia CF.

Pandiani double
Walter Pandiani scored twice as Mallorca beat Deportivo Alavés 3-1, and, having lost their first three games this season, they are now just three points behind leaders Real, held 1-1 by RC Deportivo La Coruña on Saturday. Pandiani, who returned to form with a hat-trick against Real Valladolid last week, opened the scoring on the half-hour mark with a header and then made the second for Ariel Ibagaza on 67 minutes.

Ilie consolation
Uruguayan international Pandiani made it 3-0 with a 78th-minute penalty after himself being brought down by Alavés goalkeeper Richard Dutruel, and although the visitors themselves missed a spot-kick soon after through Rubén Navarro, substitute Adrian Ilie was able to score an added-time consolation.

Celta win
RC Celta de Vigo ensured they again ended the weekend in fourth after a narrow 1-0 win against RCD Espanyol, now firmly in the bottom three despite their revived form last month. José Ignacio scored in the 17th minute to keep Celta above Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona, who both won yesterday.

Victory for Sevilla
Sevilla FC secured only their second victory of the season to move up into 13th place with a 1-0 win against Real Racing Club Santander. Francisco Casquero was on target 32 minutes in to secure the three points against a side who have been unable to reproduce their form in beating Madrid and Deportivo consistently this season.

Strugglers beaten
Valladolid end the weekend in the top half after a 3-1 win against struggling RC Recreativo de Huelva, who only secured their first victory of the season last Sunday. Nicolas Olivera, Valentín Pachón and Mario scored to give the visitors the points, although Loren did pull a goal back for Recreativo.

Late game
In Sunday's late game, Club Atlético de Madrid were denied three points at Athletic Club Bilbao by a late goal in a 3-3 draw which produced two hat-tricks. José Mari opened the scoring for the home side after 23 minutes, but Atlético took command with two goals in three minutes from Ismael Urzaiz at the start of the second half. José Mari levelled for Bibao on 75 minutes only for Urzaiz to complete his hat-trick with seven minutes of the game remaining. However, José Mari produced a terrific strike in added time to complete his own treble and crown a stunning match.
