Holders bow out as Cup group stage completed
The two entered the final day level on points, fighting to gain the second semi-final spot from Group 2.
It was a late goal that did it too, Ivan Aviles scoring three minutes from time.
Migjorn knew that a point would be enough to see them through on goal difference, so that meant UD Mahon had to chase the game – the side from the capital having scored just six goals in their eight games in the group stage.
UE Sami needed a result to keep alive their hopes of the semi-finals, and they registered a 1-0 win thanks to Pedro Anglada Florit’s goal.
Eric Llambias and Diego Gongora scored a brace apiece, as Alaior scored three goals in four second half minutes to send Atletic to a tenth successive defeat in the cup this season.
Those goals meant Llambias topped the goalscorers chart in the group stage, scoring seven goals in seven appearances for Alaior.
In the group’s other game on the final day, Penya Ciutadella defeated CD Menorca 1-0, thanks to Leandro Flores’ 85th minute strike.
