Valencia have run out steam recently though, and once again they disappointed their home fans after drawing 1-1 with bottom club Zaragoza. Lanzaro volleyed the visitors in to the lead in the third minute after Jarosik played back in a corner. And although Ricardo Costa hit the post a few minutes later, Moyà had to be at his best to keep out Lafita and Braulio as Zaragoza dominated play.
With three minutes to go to the break though Valencia got a bit of luck, Lanzaro heading a long cross from Mata past his own keeper and in to the net. Topal almost put the home side ahead after Doblas misread Vicente's free kick, his shot cleared off the line by a defender. But even after Ander Herrera was rather harshly shown a straight red for a trip on Mata, Unai Emery's side hardly troubled the visiting keeper for the rest of the match.
