Zaragoza bounced back from their heavy defeat at Barcelona last weekend, beating Almería 2-1 to move above their opponents in the table. Visiting keeper Diego Alves had to make a couple of top class saves from Ayala before Lafita finally beat him on the half hour mark. Pulido made it two after Ayala headed a corner back in to the penalty area, and Juanma Ortíz's strike a few minutes later was not enough to change the result.
