Ghanaian midfielder Iddrisu Baba Mohammed scored an own goal as Real Mallorca succumbed to a 4-2 defeat at Getafe in the Spanish La Liga on Sunday.

The 23-year-old deflected in a corner kick on the 7th-minute mark which gave the Madrid-based side the lead.

But that did not affect his confidence as the defensive midfielder lasted the entire duration at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Jorge Molina converted a 33rd-minute penalty to double the lead for Getafe and Allan Nyom made it three-nil after 66 minutes.

Ante Budimir struck twice in the 70th and 77th minutes to reduce the deficit.

Getafe's Angel Rodriguez restored their two-goal lead in the 84th minute.
