Zaragoza City vs Dinamo Tulcea was a friendly match played on 12 February 2014 at Zaragoza Arena, Aragón, Spain.

Match report

Weather conditions were fairly good for football, and Zaragoza Arena saw a crowd turnout of 1498. Jiří Stružka was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Konrad Breissler and Franz Rieks-Pedersen.

Zaragoza had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Dumitriu - Bolufer, Alòs, Ganogald - Bayo, Álvarez Miguel, Martínez, Juverdeanu, Sais - Lavín, Monis Beltrán.

Dinamo started off with a 5-3-2 lineup. The following players had been chosen: Paskum - van Breukhoven, Sheridan, da Vila, Cobby, Kivisalu - Bercea, Ilina, Creţeanu - Topârceanu, Negoiţă.

First half

For their match strategy, Dinamo had decided to use their ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Joaquín Ganogald's inexperience was obvious when his continual hesitation to put in a tackle allowed Ion-Aurel Bercea plenty of time to pick an unguarded area of the goal for his shot, marking one for Dinamo. 0 - 1. After a fatal mistake from the away team's right side defence 33 minutes into the match, an alert Manuel Bayo bagged the ball for Zaragoza, levelling the score to 1 - 1. Cristian Negoiţă was first to reach a ball launched long through the center from Dinamo's defence 39 minutes into the game. He managed to keep his cool and beat the goalkeeper to make the score 1 - 2. Adrian Juverdeanu made a superb strike after 43 minutes with a shot straight in front of the goal after a long ball through the middle, but one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in at the last second and warded it off for a corner. 1 - 2 was the halftime score. Zaragoza claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 75 percent.

Second half

Zaragoza needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 46 minutes Adrian Juverdeanu made way for Artemi Bagó. After 46 minutes, Zaragoza switched Manuel Bayo with Pedro Ignacio Tous, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Dinamo mounted an inspired counterattack down the right wing after 53 minutes, but Dragoş Ilina was unable to convert from short range. The crowd roared in delight as Francisco Lavín finished off a spectacular series of passes through the middle to even the score for Zaragoza 58 minutes into the match. 2 - 2. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Tanel Kivisalu got himself booked. The manager of Dinamo was not happy. After 73 minutes, a counter attack by Dinamo was converted into a decent free kick opportunity. However, the indirect free kick routine was easily anticipated by the defenders. A textbook example of how to defend a free kick - the attackers were left with few viable options. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Zaragoza, with 77 percent of the ball.

The most dominating Zaragoza player was without a doubt Chusé Monis Beltrán. However, Tiberiu Dumitriu made a disastrous appearance. Cristian Negoiţă performed admirably for Dinamo. Jadinilson da Vila on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 2 - 2.
