Zaragoza had defender Glenn Loovens sent off for a foul in the area after only 13 minutes, but their keeper Roberto made a great save to deny Victor from the penalty spot.

Two minutes later, Portugal striker Helder Postiga pounced on a loose ball to put the visitors ahead and Mallorca, without a win in 11 matches in all competitions, laboured to react.

Victor finally made amends for his penalty miss with an 86th-minute header for the equaliser.
