Tough defeat in Zaragoza

A difficult moment for Andorra, who have got the third consecutive defeat in a never-ending game, which was supposed to start last night but ended up being played this afternoon, already without snow on the field. In the match, the Tricolours fell to Zaragoza who did enough to punish the visitors' mistakes: in the final minutes before half-time and when Andorra was trying to equalize.

The game started electric with a shot from Jose Marsà in the first minute and Azon's reply just afterwards. From there, the match went down and only Francho made Dani Martin intervene with a great save. Apart from that, almost nothing happened near the goals until in the 44th minute Zaragoza opened the score when Francho took advantage of a loss in the dangerous area.

Despite the psychological goal, after half time Eder Sarabia's side came out brave and enjoyed up three chances in the first five minutes. Scheidler could not give enough power to his header after a Pampín cross and Édgar Badia flew in to save the equalizer; in the next corner, Pastor finished over the crossbar; and soon after, Karrikaburu slipped as he went to finish off a great play from Pampín.

But little by little the initial strength calmed down and Zaragoza took advantage of it to strike as soon it was able: Toni Moya sent a free-kick to the crossbar but Fran Gámez doubled the advantage with an acrobatic shot (67'). From there, the Aragonese team only had to let the minutes pass to get the victory.
