Zaragoza moved safely up to mid-table after beating Real Sociedad 2-0 on Sunday afternoon. Hélder Postiga silenced his critics with his first two goals for his new side, the first a spectacular overhead kick from a long Juárez cross in the tenth minute. Paredes almost added another when he fired a shot against the foot of the post following a short free kick, and Roberto was in action later in the first half to keep out a deflected shot from Zurutuza. Three minutes after the restart though Postiga ran on to Ponzio's through ball to score his second of the afternoon, and although substitutes Griezmann and Mariga tried their luck after that, the visitors could not prevent a third defeat in a row.
