Barça held to a draw by Mallorca
Barcelona dropped points for only the second time this season as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Mallorca at Son Moix. Despite going behind twice, Barcelona managed to find equalizers on both occasions. However, unlike their previous game against Celta, there were no late heroics this time, and they had to settle for a point. The result was a reminder that Barcelona should not have allowed themselves to be trailing in the first place, as Xavi had previously acknowledged.
A game of missed opportunities
Barcelona found themselves in a similar situation to their previous match, with Mallorca taking an early lead due to a mistake by Ter Stegen. However, Raphinha’s long-range strike brought Barcelona level. The Catalan side had several chances to take the lead before halftime, but Mallorca unexpectedly scored again through a simple long ball goal kick. Barcelona continued to push forward, with João Félix hitting the post and Robert Lewandowski coming on as a substitute. Fermín López eventually scored his first official goal for the team, thanks to Lewandowski’s selfless play. Despite their efforts, Barcelona couldn’t find the winning goal, and the match ended in a draw.
A frustrating result for Barcelona
Barcelona’s draw against Mallorca was a frustrating result, considering their dominance in previous meetings and the chances they had to secure the win. Mallorca’s solid defense and determination prevented Barcelona from capitalizing on their late momentum. Although Barcelona remains at the top of the table with one point clear, both Girona and Real Madrid have games in hand. This result serves as a reminder that Barcelona cannot afford to underestimate any opponent and must learn from their mistakes to maintain their position at the top.
