A solid team specializing in the domestic cup in recent years. Three years ago they won it and last year the reached the final. Last season Zaragoza played their best soccer in years. Oscar, Ewerthon, Diego and Cani where the masters up front, providing beautiful football for the team. Formations they use are mainly 4-4-2 and 4-2-3-1. A team from Aragon, Zaragoza have just one rival derby, against nearby Osasuna.
Players In: Víctor Fernández D'Alessandro (Wolfsburg) Juanfran (Besiktas) Sergio (Celta) Aimar (Valencia) Piqué (Manchester United) Diogo (Real Madrid) Players Out: Cani (Villarreal) Toledo (Kayserispor) Valbuena Savio Generelo (Gimnástic) Álvaro (Levante)Transfers assessment:
Some players left, like captain Cani, Savio, Toledo and Alvaro. But from all of those only Cani was really crucial and it happened accidentally last year when Savio got injured. Zaragoza was strengthened a lot over the summer. All players who arrived are high class and will create something greater than Zaragoza was used to in previous years.
Zaragoza are a new strong team if we can tell by studying their roster. But coach Fernández has to make them a real team and this shouldn’t take too long. They can finish with a place in the top 7 or 8.
