He controlled a diagonal pass from Cristian Gomez before rifling a powerful effort which came off Mallorca goalkeeper Dudu Aouate on six minutes to pull even for the visitors.
It was his first goal in the Spanish top-flight after featuring for relegated Villarreal the last two seasons.
Wakaso who joined Espanyol from relegated Villarreal was replaced in the 69th minute mark by Alfonso.
