Real Zaragoza continues with its climb, which already places it in the second place of the classification, despite having a pending match, after beating 1-2 at Martínez Valero al Elche, which suffers a slowdown in its aspirations to consolidate in the promotion promotion zone.
The Víctor Fernández team demonstrated its enormous potential and its extraordinary moment of form in a meeting in which he fondled the local team with a frenetic rhythm and in which, in addition, he knew how to take advantage of the defensive sloppings of Elche.
Real Zaragoza started the game in an open grave, pressing the exit of the Elche ball, unable to braid their usual game. The high pace of Zaragoza game surprised the local team, overwhelmed by the intensity and verticality of its rival.
Puado was the first to warn with a focused shot that Badía stopped. In full control of Zaragoza, a loss of the ball was punished by Puado, whose shot to a stick was picked up by Soro to score the first goal in the empty goal.
Despite the advantage, the Zaragoza gale did not decrease and the Aragonese team scored several times in the second half.
But Elche did not give up his style and on the first occasion he could break the pressure he made a great play for a band that culminated Pere Milla with a superb header to the net.
The tie unleashed Elche, who managed to balance the game, but a new defensive error, this time by Gonzalo Verdú, allowed Luis Suárez to steal the ball in a risk zone and stand alone against Edgar Badía, who beat with a low shot .
The game became a spectacular round trip with two teams looking for the opposite goal, although it was Zaragoza, more intense and vertical, which was closer to the goal with Soro and Puado shots.
After the break, Zaragoza continued to drown Elche with a pressure that was about to bear fruit after an action in which the ball, cleared by a defender, bounced in Luis Suárez and Badía, on the goal line, avoided the so much.
Pacheta entered Fidel and Escriche to boost his attack and Elche went on to carry the weight of the game. Pere Milla had the option to tie with a shot from outside the area that crashed on the crossbar.
The occasion encouraged the ilicitano team, but Zaragoza, through the backlash, continued to threaten through Puado, who could not beat Badía in one hand at a time.
Atienza, head-on, and Puado, after a great combination of the entire attack, also hovered the sentence before an increasingly overturned Elche. The Ilicitano team, despite everything, did not give up and had the option to tie in the last minutes through Pere Milla, but his header, just against Álvarez, went out for a short time.
