|It was fourth consecutive victory for Zaragoza, as the side now stands at fourth position at the table with eight points less than directly and second placed Rayo Vallecano. The side remains just above the sides out of the play-off zone having only three points more than seventh placed Numancia.
Central defender Simone Grippo (23/3) is injured for this one.
Valladolid seems to be even in a better form as the team comes from their third consecutive victory since they outplayed Lorca FC last weekend with a 5:1 victory away from home. Hosts took the lead in nineteenth minute via Pomares and that was pretty much what they did on the field.
Since that moment visitors took over the control and deserved the equalizer in 33rd minute via Borja. They continued improving and impressing on the field in second, completely outplayed the opponents and fully deserving that big margin victory thanks to three goals from Mata and a goal from Michel in second part.
As said, it was their third consecutive victory in LaLiga 2, but also fifth game without defeat (four victories in the process). The team is only a point behind Zaragoza and needs something to take here, since they have just two points less than out of play-off zone placed Numancia.
Left defender Nacho Martinez (17/0) is suspended for this one. Central back Deivid (24/1) and midfielder Antonio Cotan (8/0) are injured.
Valladolid is undefeated in last seven matches away to Zaragoza, winning six of those.
The game comes as very important to both of the teams. Zaragoza is playing fine in front of own fans and surely are aiming for a victory here, while Valladolid also looks more than well at the moment and with plenty of potential in attack. Both sides have good quality upfront while neither of them look fully reliable at the back.
