Betis wins 2-1 at Zaragoza to stay in 5th in Spain

Strike pair Ruben Castro and Jorge Molina both scored to give Real Betis a 2-1 win at Real Zaragoza in the Spanish league on Friday.
Betis' third straight away victory provisionally lifted the Seville-based side level on points with fourth-place Malaga and two points behind third-place Real Madrid.
After Zaragoza had squandered various chances from set pieces, Castro netted his team-high 10th goal of the season one minute before halftime when he collected a long ball behind Zaragoza's high defensive line and shot under the goalkeeper.
Molina then doubled the visitors' advantage in the 58th after intercepting a sloppy pass by defender Alvaro Gonzalez.
Paco Montanes scored for Zaragoza in the 78th.
