1-0. 81. Portillo. Dived forward on far post to head Gil's corner into top of net.

Zaragoza slipped out of the Champions League spots down to fifth, now three points behind Valencia, after they lost 1-0 to bottom club Gimnàstic. The Catalans were on top for much of the game, with Generelo and Pinilla both testing César before the break. D'Alessandro tried his luck with a couple of efforts either side of half time, but Portillo should have given the locals the lead when he headed wide with the goal at his mercy soon after the restart.

Substitute Rubén Castro provided fresh legs and brought a good save out of César with a long range shot later in the second half, and with ten minutes to go Portillo flung himself forward to meet Gil's corner on the far post and score the winner. Oscar did finally give Bizzarri some work to do late on, but it was a poor performance by Víctor Fernández's side in the end. The victory takes Nàstic to within six points of safety.
