Well, la Liga is finally back after two boring weeks... this has to be a revenge for the Spanish Supercup we lost against them, and for the draw in the first game in Mestalla :fero:

AMUNT!

Midfield looks really thin and weak to me, let's hope Fabio has a big game, he's th eonly one who can create much from the list. It's going to be a difficult game but we have to win, we can't afford to drop more points!!

We totally dominated the first half but we are 1-0 down. :(

Generlo with a long range effort, Cani's mistake.. am I the only one who feels that he's losing it? Too many mistakes...

Mista is playing as a left wing, Fabio in the middle in Baraja's place and Angulo is playing 'in the hole' behind Di Vaio. We are missing too many chances.

AMUNT VALENCIA!!

1-0 HT
Generolo scored in the 44th mn from a long range shot(20-25m)

Valencia dominated this 1rst half but they were unable to convert their chance to goals and Aimar's absence seems to be a real problem because the midfield really lacks creativity.
Rufete should be subbed,he was awful and Angulo is also not at his best

some changes should be made during the 2nd half if Valencia want to get at least a point from La Romareda

Coming back from 2-0 down against a good home team like Zaragoza in 10 minuts is nothing to be ashamed of. You certainly look a hundred times better than a month ago !

By the way, where was Aimar today?

Aimar suffered an injury when he was with the Argentina NT that's why he was out of today's game. ;)
Valencia really missed his creativity in the midfield

Di Vaio missed about 6-7 chances altogether. We dominated in the first half but couldn't score. Zaragoza was all over us in the second until Corradi scored followed by Caneira. Our game got better after that. We came back from being 2 down to tie with a good home team. A month ago, we would lost the game for sure. Rufete was terrible from the start and he was bad in the game with Getafe as well.

Not a bad result... in theory. An away draw is not a bad result, but it's going to depend on the rest of the results today. Villarreal already won and they still have one match less to be played against Osasuna (who are doing awful lately), Betis have a tough match in Barcelona, the ones that come behind (Sevilla, Atleti, Espanyol, Depor) come pushing... the fight for the 3rd and 4th place is going to be impressive.

We miss too many chances... and Di Vaio was horrible, at least Corradi scored his goal. Now let's wait until he scores again in September or so :rolleyes:
