Zaragoza ‘suffering with set-pieces’

Abraham Minero has signposted Real Zaragoza’s problems this season so far as stemming from trying to defend set-pieces.

The Aragonese have sandwiched an away win at Espanyol with home defeats to Real Valladolid and Malaga, and 26-year-old full-back Abraham is clear on where the inconsistency comes from.

“We are suffering with set-pieces,” he volunteered to the media today.

“We are watching more videos, trying to concentrate better and we are working more [to remedy it].

“Clearly it is not a problem of one, two or three of our players, it is a general problem for the team and we have to work and be better focused so that it doesn’t continue to happen.”

The team fell to a 1-0 defeat in their last League outing, with an Ignacio Camacho goal from a corner proving the difference in front of Zaragoza’s fans.

“The showed themselves against a Champions League opponent. Malaga scored from a set-play but did little more, whilst we attacked them and had the clearer chances.

“To not lose again we can only put in more work. The team is showing positive signs of working together and we will put a lot of work into training this week so as to be at our best against Real Sociedad, to try to get a good result.”
