Both teams needed strong results on the road to escape relegation before the final weekend of the league season, and they answered with wins over Alaves and Osasuna respectively.
Cadiz’s return was the more exciting of the two storylines, with the team still third at 0-0 in the Basque Country in the final 15 minutes when Anthony Lozano ran around his leg to take the win.

Mallorca’s trip to Alaves who have already landed was much easier for the visitors, as veteran striker Angel Rodriguez put them ahead shortly after the break.
Clement Grenier’s late goal gave Mallorca three crucial points, but Granada’s 0-0 draw at home to Espanyol means the team will be relegated to the second division next season.
