  • 53'
    Yellow Card Gabi
  • 53'
    Valencia are playing a very high defensive line, and although Zaragoza seem to be sitting back, the pace of Uche on the counter attack will still be a danger.
  • 51'
    The home side seem to have calmed down their attacking play, they may be looking to just sit on their 2-0 lead and soak up the pressure from Valencia.
  • 49'
    Valencia have started to calm the pace of the game down and are enjoying a sustained period of possession, but are still to create any clear-cut chances.
  • 47'
    Zaragoza have started the second half with the same intensity and tempo as the first half.
  • 45'
    The second half has kicked off and Real Zaragoza are looking comfortable with their lead, but Valencia will feel that if they can get an early goal, they may still have a chance of getting something from the game.
  • Half time in Zaragoza as the home side go into the break with a 2-0 lead over a Valencia team who appears to be suffering from a European hangover. Join Us In 15 Minutes For The Second Half !

    SubstitutionRicardo Costa Ever Banega
  • 34'
    Valencia make a very early substitution as Ricardo Costa comes off to be replaced by Ever Banega. A defender off for a midfielder.
  • 32'
    Zaragoza are defending pretty well from Valencia's first piece of extended possession in the game. They look solid and well organised.
  • 30'
    Valencia are having real trouble keeping a hold of possession, Topal and Tino Costa need to get on the ball and try and influence the play more.
  • 28'
    Yellow Card Paredes
  • 27'
    The pressing of the Real Zaragoza players is leaving Valencia with no option but to try and play the long ball but Soldado is finding it difficult to hold up the ball.
  • 25'
    HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUY ! Real Zaragoza should be two nil up after Bertolo got on the end of a Diogo knock down but could only manage to scoop the ball over the cross bar from the penalty spot !
  • 23'
    The first 20 minutes of the game have been very scrappy. Neither team has been able to establish a flow in their play.
  • 21'
    Tenacious play from Joaquin down the right hand side for Valencia, showing good strength and pace to earn his team a freekick when they were under pressure.
  • 19'
    Toni Doblas sees his first action of the game as Soldado strikes the ball right off the chest of the Real Zaragoza goalkeeper. The Spanish striker was eventually ruled as offside but still good goalkeeping.
  • 17'
    Another set-piece opportunity for Zaragoza but unfortunately Parades cannot get the same conviction as his previous attempts and the Valencia defence manage to clear the ball.
  • 15'
    Opportunity for Valencia to create a chance with a freekick from the right hand side of the Zaragoza box but Tino Costa gets it horribly wrong and evades everyone in the penalty area with an over-hit cross.
  • 13'
    Valencia are starting to control the possession in the midfield area but Zaragoza are defending in numbers and are proving to be a solid barrier.
  • 11'
    Uche perhaps should have doubled the lead of the home side after running through on goal to the left hand side, but too many touches from the Nigerian allows Guaita and the Valencia defence to clear the danger.
  • 9'
    Valencia will have to quickly pick themselves up from this early set-back.
  • 7'

    Fantastic start to the match from Zaragoza.

  • 4'
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for Real Zaragoza !
  • 2'
    Zaragoza have made a good start to the match, the players look up for the game and the tempo of their game is high.
  • The match has kicked off in Zaragoza and hopefully we will see an entertaining match with plenty of chances.
  • Real Zaragoza will look to take advantage of Valencia's midweek defeat and climb up the table with a home win. However they face a tough task as Los Che are the form team in La Liga at the moment.
  • Valencia were knocked out of the Champions League midweek against Schalke so this will certainly add to their determination to hang on to the European place they currently find themselves in.
  • Here is the first eleven of Valencia: Guaita, Jordi Alba, Costa, Stankevicius, Bruno, Tino Costa, Topal, Joaquín, Mathieu, Jonas, Soldado.
  • The teams are in and this is how Real Zaragoza will be lining up tonight: Doblas, Diogo, Jarosik, Contini, Paredes, Ponzio, Gabi, Jorge López, Ander, Bertolo, Uche.
