1-1. 80. D'Alessandro. Struck quick free kick with keeper out of position.

Zaragoza and Getafe both stay in midtable after the two sides drew 1-1. The visitors were the better side for much of the match, with César saving from De la Red and Uche having an effort turned away for a corner early on. The locals improved either side of half time, with Sergio García, Oliveira and Milito all going close, but César had to be at his best to keep out a Granero free kick and Sergio García cleared off the line from Manu with the keeper beaten.

Midway through the second half Michael Laudrup's team finally took the lead when Juanfran failed to control Granero's cross, leaving the way free for Sousa to shoot low past César. Uche could have increased the lead, but Zaragoza equalised in a strange incident, visiting keeper Pato Abbondanzieri out of his goal arguing with Alvarez Izquierdo about a new substitution when the referee ignored him and blew his whistle, allowing D'Alessandro to fire a quick free kick into the empty net. Getafe tried to bounce back and César had to save a late effort from Manu, but the game ended soon afterwards.
