Jimenez eager for first win of 2013

Real Zaragoza boss Manolo Jimenez has praised Friday's opponents Real Betis as they prepare to face off at La Romareda.

The Blanquillos currently sit in 12th position in La Liga having won seven of their first 17 League games.

But the 48-year-old Coach believes his team will have it all to do against the Verdiblancos.

“We are eager to play a good game and get a result,” he told a Press conference. “I think we should be optimistic for the year ahead, and I am excited by the challenge.

“Betis though are a very good team – they are fighting for the Champions League and have done very well so far.

“They play well on the break and have a nice balance between defence and attack.

“However, having said that, we will go for the win.”
