Zaragoza beats Osasuna 3-1 in Spanish league


The Associated Press

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -Zaragoza beat last-place Osasuna 3-1 at home on Saturday, keeping the struggling Pamplona-based side winless after five rounds of the Spanish league.

Portugal striker Helder Postiga gave Zaragoza the opener at La Romareda stadium four minutes in, reaching Victor Rodriguez's headed pass before slotting home.

Emiliano Armenteros leveled for Osasuna with a long-range strike in the 29th, only for teammate David Timor to put Zaragoza back in front when he redirected Rodriguez's cross into his own net in a botched attempt to clear just before halftime.

Antonio "Apono" Galdeano ensured Zaragoza broke its two-game losing streak by converting a penalty in the 71st after Raoul Loe had fouled Jose Movilla in the area.
