Jimenez: Match will be a titanic battle

Manolo Jimenez has called Real Zaragoza's match up with Real Mallorca tomorrow 'a titanic struggle for points'.

The Blanquillos face Joaquin Caparros' side at La Romareda tomorrow, and the 48-year-old has claimed that it will be a tough encounter against a side fighting a relegation battle.

“It's going to be a titanic battle for points,” he told a Press conference. “Both teams will be competing, so it's difficult to predict what's going to happen.

“I know Joaquin Caparros very well, and apart from being a great Coach and a great tactician, he has the ability to get the best out of this Mallorca squad.”

He also commented on the squad's fitness following a midweek round of Copa del Rey fixtures.

“We are professionals and we live to play football,” he said. “We are tired, yes. But less so than yesterday.”
