Just what UD Las Palmas lacked to close down their goal. They didn’t even look too overwhelmed, but they were once again guilty of the same things: their indolence in defending and a lack of sense to cry. With a virtual salvation and a project to be created, the sensation left by this season suggests that there are more plans to be developed than foundations laid. All without knowing who will be the foreman of this work.
It was looking good, but a deja-vu flew over the Gran Canaria. A loss of the UD in the area of Zaragoza raised a manual counterattack. Juanjo Narváez rode and Tomás Cardona fell on the Colombian’s break. Another penalty to the song of the Argentine and again, of course, the result of a yellow rampage. The change of the penalty taker – Eguaras took it – did not change Valles’ idea: he went to the same side. And this time, chance smiled on him. Cardona owed him one.
That injected a few moments of rage into the UD. They regained control of the ball and the match, but lacked the most important thing: the goal. Jesé wasted a good ball that fell to his left leg and a few minutes later he came up against a providential hand from Álvarez. All of this to culminate the best yellow combination of the whole match: Sergio Ruiz for Clemente’s touch, which Araujo, with his spur, turned into a perfect assist. However, there is no one to remove Jesé’s jinx.
Las Palmas decided to go in search of the equalizer, leaving spaces in their hesitant defense that would again commit a penalty. A fateful counter-attack led by Narváez ended with Cardona himself being brought down inside the area. Surprisingly, Zanimacchia decided not to take the penalty but it was Eguaras who shot too innocently allowing Valles to save the second goal. Cristian, Peybernes and Francés were key to prevent the Canaries from equalizing before the break.
Real Zaragoza takes a giant step towards permanence in the Second Division thanks to their efficient victory against Las Palmas. Goals from non-regulars Zanimacchia and Sanabria gave JIM’s side a vital three points.

Zaragoza ud las palmas 2021
Real Zaragoza beat UD Las Palmas 1-0 thanks to a second-half penalty goal scored by Javi Ros, in an even match, with a disappointing first half and a much more open second half, with clear chances for both teams, and which ended up being decided from the penalty spot after a foul on the Colombian Luis Suárez.
After the break, both sides seemed to break free of the shackles and Las Palmas, in just three minutes, had three shots on target. The most dangerous shot, from Mantovani, was caught by Cristian Álvarez in an action that was reviewed by the VAR for a possible handball by Nieto that was not sanctioned.
In the opposing goal, Álvaro Valles saved Las Palmas, first in a hard cross shot by Puado and then after snatching from Kagawa the ball he had just given him in a serious mistake that was immediately corrected by the Andalusian goalkeeper.
A long elaborate play by Zaragoza ended with Mantovani bringing down Luis Suárez inside the area, which the referee sanctioned as a penalty. At that moment, the specialist Javi Ros came on the field -the change was already planned minutes before- to convert from the eleven meters with a tight shot to the right corner of Valles.
