Atalanta drew 1-1 at Fiorentina on Monday after conceding a second-half penalty as they missed the chance to boost their hopes of a top-four finish in Serie A.

Atalanta, placed sixth, failed to capitalise after points were dropped by their rivals for Champions league qualification. AC Milan, who were held 1-1 at Bologna on Saturday, are four points ahead on 53 in fourth spot with eight games left.

Win at last

Mallorca's struggles on the road in La Liga are finally over. A 1-0 win at Celta Vigo on Monday ended the team's seven-match winless streak in away matches, a run that started before the World Cup last year.

Amath Ndiaye scored a 21st-minute winner for Mallorca, which was coming off six losses and a draw on the road in the league. They hadn't won anywhere in six straight matches.

The result lifted the club coached by Mexican Javier Aguirre to 11th place, one point in front of 12th-placed Celta, which was seeking a win after consecutive draws at Sevilla and against Almeria.
