The three points stay at La Romadera after the duel between two teams already in need in the beginning of the season.
Zaragoza took the win against Osasuna earlier today, at they did it in some style. In fact, it was the first with of the team scoring three goals in La Liga since one year and a half.
The home team started strong from the beginning, and had the first chance just three minutes into the game through the surprising Victor Rodríguez, making his debut in Primera this season, and showing quite some character and freshness in the final meters. In fact, he was responsible for the assist to Postiga just one minute later, who profited from it to make 1-0 after only 4 minutes of play.
Real Zaragoza tried to administrate their lead, without giving up increasing it before half time. However, it would be Osasuna who would get the draw through Armenteros in the 28th minute, in what was the first serious approach of the team from Navarra . The hosts tried to hit back with a shot from Montañés just a couple of minutes later, but was frustrated by the response of the keeper Andrés. The rojillos were confident of making it into the changing room with a draw on the scoreboard, however in the 44th minute, a cross again from Víctor Rodríguez was deflected by Timor into his own goal, making it 2-1 before the half-time whistle. A deserved partial result judging by the intentions and merits of both teams in the first 45 minutes.
In the second half, Real Zaragoza continued to control the game, with an impressive Jose Mari in the middle of the park. With the play build up being far from brilliant, things seemed at least well directed, and even more so in the 70th minute, when Apoño converted a penalty gained by Movilla, who made his comeback to La Romareda to the delight of the fans.
During the last minutes of the game, Osasuna showed some pressure up front, especially through Cejudo, and Zaragoza’s defense did seems insecure at times. However, the match ended 3-1 lifting Jiménez’s to the temperate part of the table, and leaving the team from Pamplona in the last position of the classification.
Next weekend, Zaragoza will face Valencia in Mestalla with the objective of repeating last year’s heroic performance.
