1-0. 76. Ewerthon. Ran on to loose ball in area and shot low across keeper.

Celta dropped out of the European spots after losing 1-0 to Zaragoza, who themselves appear to be on the way to recovery after a bad run. The Galicians caused some problems for César early on, particularly with efforts from Baiano and David Silva. But Víctor Muñoz's side could have gone ahead before the break, in particular when Pinto did well to stop a low shot from Ewerthon and Angel cleared an Alvaro header away from goal with the keeper beaten.

Zaragoza dominated the second half though as the visitors sat back to defend the point, and Ewerthon finally made the breakthrough after a good run by Oscar González down the wing. It was the Brazilian forward's fourth in three games, and the win takes his side safely up to mid-table.
