Rodriguez fires Mallorca past Celta Vigo

Mallorca have enjoyed their third straight home win in the Spanish league with a 1-0 victory over Celta Vigo.

Dani Rodriguez slotted the ball just inside the right post in the 59th minute after Pablo Maffeo burst down the right flank and found his teammate arriving in the area.

It was the midfielder's first league goal of the season.

The defence constructed by coach Javier Aguirre did the rest by shutting out Celta.

The win strengthened Mallorca's hold on 10th place. Celta were left in 16th, just one point above the relegation zone.

The victory comes three days after Mallorca were eliminated from the Copa del Rey's round of 16.
