LAST MEETING

Bertolo has shown time and time again this season just how important he is for Zaragoza. If they have any intention to attack, most of their efforts will go through this man.

A. Costa

Position: Midfielder

Costa's passing has been great all season, and he has scored some important and incredible goals. Valencia will look to him for inspiration, and it is likely that he will provide.

Editor's Prediction

Zaragoza are a tough team to beat at home, and Valencia will be low on morale and energy after their champions league exit to Schalke in mid-week. Valencia will probably be the better side on the night, but Zaragoza should be able to take a point.
