Valencia have been losing steam recently, and their third spot is in danger after they were beaten 1-2 by bottom club Zaragoza. The Ches took the lead early on when Pablo Hernández turned in Soldado's cross, and it looked all over when Pablo Alvarez was sent off for bringing down Aduríz. But Apoño levelled the scores from the penalty spot after Dealbert handled in the area on the half hour mark, and Roberto pulled off a string of saves before Apoño got the winner on a quick breakaway late on. Zaragoza ended with nine men after Zuculini was also sent off, and the local fans showed their disgust after the final whistle.
