Referee: Alberto Undiano
Real Madrid will be hoping to keep their stunning form of 2013 going when they travel to La Liga strugglers Real Zaragoza on Saturday.
After a slow start to the season, Jose Mourinho’s men have won eight and drawn one of their last nine matches – a sequence highlighted by back-to-back wins over Barcelona in the league and cup, and victory against Manchester United in the Champions League.
In all, they have lost just one match in 2013 – and that a shock 1-0 reverse at Granada in La Liga in February.
Nevertheless, Real remain 13 points adrift of leaders Barcelona with ten games remaining in the domestic league.
A trip to a Real Zaragoza side searching for a first win in any competition since January the 9th provides an ideal opportunity for Real to maintain their momentum.
