    Time:90'
    • Real Zaragoza
    • Valencia CF
    • 90' Four seconds of added time is played as the curtain is brought down on a fantastic win for Zaragoza - and a thoroughly miserable evening for Valencia!
    • 88' Possession stats: 62 per cent to Zaragoza, 38 for Valencia. Says it all, really.
    • 86' Here's the change: Diogo off, Da Silva on.
    • 83' A quick change of shirts and Da Silva is ready to come on... wearing number 19!
    • 82' That substitue is wearing number 15... but N'Daw is already on, wearing the number 15!
    • 81' Javier Aguirre is about to make another change for Zaragoza...
    • 80' Zaragoza should be happy to see this one out now, but they're actually pushing for a fifth. And why not? They're absolutely buoyant and this now presents a good opportunity to improve their goal difference.
    • 79' Here comes another change for Zaragoza: Gabi gets a standing ovation as N'Daw comes on to replace him.
    • 77' What a performance by Zaragoza this is. They'll jump to 14th tonight, and they can enjoy the rest of the evening.
    • 75' GOAL! Gabi makes it two with another confident spot kick! This is an absolute hammering!
    • 74' PENALTY! Surely! Yes! Albelda is booked for a clumsy challenge on the breaking Braulio in the box!
    • 71' Ooh! Almost another! Braulio runs in on goal and fires on target! Only a good save by Guaita prevents a fourth goal!
    • 69' But this is a truly miserable night for Valencia fans. A European hangover of the worst kind. A real stinker.
    • 68' They're bouncing in the stands as the celebrations begin in earnest for Zaragoza fans!
    • 66' Game over? Quite possibly. Valencia make a change: off goes Jonas and on comes Albelda.
    • 65' GOAL! Gabi sends Guaita the wrong way and it's 3-0!
    • 64' Protestations ensue, but the decision stands and Valencia have a mountain to climb now.
    • 63' And that's Stankevicius's second bookable offence... he has to go! Valencia down to 10 men!
    • 62' Big penalty shout for Zaragoza as Stankevicius brings down Bertolo in the box! PENALTY IT IS!
    • 59' That's the end of Uche's night as he is brought off and replaced by Braulio.
    • 57' That's an odd one - Mathieu has been one of Valencia's better players tonight.
    • 56' Maybe this change will provide the inspiration: Mata on for Mathieu.
    • 55' No, it's headed cleared at the first by Jarosik. Valencia need something from somewhere, and soon.
    • 54' Some hope here for Valencia as Joaquin wins a corner...
    • 52' Gabi goes in slightly late on Tino Costa and that'll be a booking for the Zaragoza midfielder.
    • 51' But again, that offside incident just shows how fragmented the Valencian back line is. They're walking a tightrope at the moment.
    • 50' Uche is caught inches offside as he races onto a through pass... replays show the assistant referee to have been absolutely right.
    • 48' Uche looks to cause a few problems in the Valencia box now as he looks to find Ander...
    • 47' Ooh! Lopez volley over the bar at back stick as Zaragoza start the second half where they left off the first!
    • 46' Here we go again, back under way at La Romareda.
    • 45'+1 There goes the half-time whistle and Zaragoza take a two-goal lead in with them at the break!
    • 45' Tino Costa now goes into the book for a hack on Ander...
    • 44' Soldado attempts a difficult first-time volley... and he fires wide.
    • 43' Is this really third against 17th? It certainly doesn't seem that way at the moment.
    • 42' Stankevicius is booked for a clumsy challenge as Valencia unravel at the back.
    • 41' What a pass that was by Uche... top drawer from the Nigerian.
    • 40' GOAL! Ander Herrera doubles Zaragoza's advantage! It's a lovely finish through the legs of Guaita after he's played through on goal by a beautiful pass by Uche!
    • 39' Uche! Oooh! So close to a second for Zaragoza! Bertolo sends over a cross shot that Uche stretches to reach... he gets something on it, but not enough to divert the ball into the back of the net!
    • 37' Banega slips and Zaragoza are in here! Bertolo plays it to Uche, who should run in on goal... but he opts to play the ball back! Why? It's a poor decision as his pass is equally bad - it goes straight to the keeper and the move breaks down.
    • 36' Alba is again sent to the turf... Ponzio is the miscreant, but no action other than a free-kick is taken.
    • 35' Here comes the change: Ricardo Costa is brought off and Ever Banega comes on. That looks like it's an enforced change.
    • 34' Alba is sent sprawling and he stays down clutching his knee.
    • 33' Looks like Valencia are going to make a change in a bid to shake things up...
    • 32' So far so good for Zaragoza, although they have a corner to defend here. They do so comfortably.
    • 30' Half an hour gone and Jarosik's header is still the diffference between the two sides.
    • 29' Time now for Valencia to put a free-kick into the Zaragoza box. Jarosik deals with it admirably though.
    • 28' Here goes Uche again... he keeps a long ball in at the byline but he can't make anything of the position this time.
    • 26' Valencia are really struggling to cope with those free-kicks from Zaragoza. That could easily have been a second from a very similar position to the one which led to the goal.
    • 25' Oooh! Chance for Zaragoza! From another free-kick Diogo is allowed to head on for Bertolo, who conspires to fire over the bar!
    • 22' Diogo is pulled up for a shoulder charge and the pressure eases on Valencia.
    • 20' Jaoquin slips it through for Soldado... he runs onto it and fires at the legs of Doblas! Off side anyway, wouldn't have counted! Replays show it to have been an awful decision - he was a yard on!
    • 18' Valencia have responded well to going behind... but they still trail.
    • 16' This is good build up play from Valencia now but Mathieu ruins it by playing a short ball to Alba, who is in an offside position.
    • 15' But that's a poor delivery from the set piece and the ball sails over everybody.
    • 14' Soldado goes down under the challenge of Gabi and Valencia have a free-kick out on the right wing.
    • 13' Valencia are playing the ball around the back as they look to get a grip on the game after that early blow.
    • 12' Mathieu sends over a delightful cross right into the danger area which Doblas spills... but the keeper's lucky this time and his defenders clear their lines.
    • 11' It's been quite an open start to the game so far.
    • 10' Here come Zaragoza again as Uche races clear... he checks back though and the chance is lost.
    • 8' That is the last thing Valencia wanted after their Champions League exit in midweek. How can they respond now?
    • 7' And with that goal the pressure immediately increases on Valencia boss Unai Emery!
    • 6' What a start to the game! Valencia are reeling already!
    • 5' GOAL! Zaragoza take the lead through Jarosik! La Romareda erupts as the Czech player rises to nod past Guaita amid some poor Valencia marking!
    • 3' Uche is caught offside a coupe of times early on...
    • 2' Valencia are in their orange away kit tonight, with Zaragoza playing in their usual white shirts and blue shorts.
    • 1' Here we go! Underway at La Romareda!
    • 20:55 Real Zaragoza: Doblas, Diogo, Jarosik, Contini, Paredes, Ponzio, Gabi, Lopez, Herrera, Bertolo, Uche /// Valencia: Guaita, Bruno Saltor, Stankevicius, Ricardo Costa, Alba, Tino, Topal, Joaquin, Mathieu, Jonas, Soldado
    • 20:50 Los Che head into the game four points clear of their local rivals but can extend that advantage to seven points with victory over Zaragoza, who are struggling in 17th.
    • 20:45 Third-placed Valencia travel to La Romareda where they meet Real Zaragoza looking to put some distance between themselves and Villarreal in fourth.
