Manzano: An important point

Mallorca Coach Gregorio Manzano has admitted that his side were lucky to get away with a draw against Rayo Vallecano.

Alfaro cancelled out Piti's early strike to give the Islanders a 1-1 draw, but the 57-year-old has conceded that his team were fortunate to get a point.

“We faced a very good opponent,” he told a Press conference. “They were comfortable and played with little fear.

“They have some quality players, so a draw is the lesser of two evils for us.

“Today we have saved ourselves for a defeat.

“There situations in football where luck favours you, and today was one of those. It was an important point.”
