Zaragoza's new boss Víctor Muñoz saw his side defeated 1-3 by Mallorca, a disappointment after their cup victory at Barcelona midweek. Visiting manager Luis Aragonés drafted new signing Delibasic straight into the starting line up and he got off to the best possible start, testing Lainez with a header five minutes before the break and then and then opening the scoring with a headed goal from Nené's corner only a minute later. And before half time the Serbian striker set up Bruggink for him to beat the keeper a second time.

The home side's only real effort in the first half was a header from Yordi which was blocked by his own man, David Villa, but Ponzio hammered one back in the second half with a powerful shot from outside of the area which took a deflection off a defender. They could do no more though, and Nené got a third goal in injury time to end his team's run of five games without a win. Zaragoza stay down in the bottom three, and Víctor will have his work cut out to save them on this showing.
