Five goals in the Riazor stadium on Saturday, hosts Deportivo beating Zaragoza 3-2 to move off last spot to within a point of their opponents in the table. It was an intense match between two relegation rivals, with the lead changing hands twice before the Galicians ran out winners in the end. Riki tested Roberto early on, and with ten minutes gone Bruno Gama opened the scoring after picking up Valerón's pass and cutting past his marker to score. Postiga made it all square from the penalty spot five minutes later however after Aythami handled in the area, and although Aguilar felt that his header had crossed the line before the visiting keeper got it away soon afterwards, Paco Montañés ran on to Movilla's through ball to give the Maños the lead a minute later. Before the half time whistle though Marchena levelled the scores once again when Aguilar headed the ball over after Pizzi's free kick was only partly cleared, and Aythami came close to putting the locals ahead when he hit the post and then saw his header cleared off the line by Loovens soon after the restart. A couple of minutes later Depor did take the lead again when Abraham could only could only chest Pizzi's corner in to his own net, referee José Antonio Teixeira Vitienes turning down Zaragoza's appeal for a foul on the keeper, and any hope of saving anything ended when the unfortunate Abraham was sent off for a second bookable offence with ten minutes to go.
