Zaragoza cause a big surprise as they defeat Barcelona

Share |

The Blaugrana fans were expecting an easy victory, but Zaragoza crushed those dreams. Uruguayan player Diogo headed in Andres D'Alessandro's corner to put Barcelona in the edge of elimination.

In fact, the South American footballer broke the deadlock in an absorbing and evenly matched encounter when he steered the ball past Barcelona goalkeeper Albert Jorquera after a corner kick.

We must say that Ronaldinho was completely controled by the rival's defensive line. The only good chance he had was a long shot in the second half.

It's important to mention that Zaragoza knocked the Catalans out of the cup at the same stage last season and also in 2004, when it went on to win the competition with triumph over powerhouse Real Madrid in the final game.
