RCD Mallorca 1-1 Valencia CF - Player Ratings

Guaita 6 - Wasn't really threatened, but was confident coming out and punching the ball out. Unfortunately didn't guess the side the penalty was shot and not his fault.
Bruno 5.5 - Did well in defense, but could not help out in attack and lost the ball too few many times in dangerous positions.
Rami 7 - Did well in defense and scored a goal. Wasn't particularity troubled at any time.
Ruiz 6.5 - Same as Rami, did his job well and never really troubled.
Alba 6.5 - Wasn't very convincing in defense especially when run at directly and Chori did get the better of him few times, but he did good going forward and helped out quite a bit in attack.
Albelda 6 - Good cover in the midfield and helped out immensely in defense, but lacks any passing vision.
Parejo 5.5 - Very ineffectual with lots of mistakes. Tried hard and had some nice crosses, but just didn't deliver too much.
Pablo 5.5 - One of the worst performances from Pablo this season. He did absolutely nothing. Couldn't tie up even two passes, his dribbling was way off and just a very poor match overall from Pablo.
Canales 5.5 - Same as Pablo. Was good in the first half with few nice touches, but completely gone in the second half.
Piatti 5.5 - Tried very hard on the left, but he just can't seem to dribble past anyone and his passes lack precision and creativity.
Soldado 6 - Worked hard and while he himself wasn't particularity threatening he set up few nice passes to his team mates. He lacked service all match long.
Feghuoli 5.5 - A lot more dangerous than Piatti and the rest of the attack, but did not have enough time to influence the match and apart from few nice passes didn't have time to do more.
Topal N/A - Made one mistake when he came over and that indirectly set in motion the events that would lead to the penalty call. Did not play with his hands though and the referee is blind or payed off.
Aduriz N/A - Not enough time.

Unai Emery 6 - Decided to rest Banega, but looking from this point in time it was a mistake. Parejo wasn't able to influence the game and when Mallorca opened up and started attacking Valencia lost all possession.
I feel like Emery wasn't at fault for the result, as all players played pretty bad overall.

Referee -10 - If you want to destroy someone wait till the 92nd minute and blow the whistle for an unexisting penalty with no chance for the team to come back.
