Barcelona: Striker Adrian Colunga scored twice to help Getafe to a 3-1 comeback win at Mallorca, breaking a four-game away losing streak in the Spanish league on Saturday.

Mallorca forward Giovani dos Santos opened in the 24th minute through an individual effort by dribbling past his marker and curling a shot off the upright and into the net.

But the game swung in Getafe's favor in the 70th when Diego Castro converted a spot kick after Mallorca defender Jose Nunes was called for handling when it appeared he had blocked a pass with his shoulder.
