Bad week for Valencia
After falling in the Champions League midweek, Valencia only need to concentrate on keeping the third spot in the Spanish league in order to make it back to the Champions League next season. I got ready for the match against Zaragoza after the gym, a bit in the pool, and the Manchester United-Arsenal match (2-0, putting United in the semifinals of the FA Cup, and also a bad week for Arsenal). I got myself a six-pack of Solera-Verde beer, and was in the mood for a good Valencia match! But I stopped watching at half-time. Valencia played like a bunch of leg-less chicken. Nothing worked, and Zaragoza, who is struggling to get away from the relegation area on the table, won 4-0. Valencia had not lost by four goals since 2008, to FC Barcelona.
