Sandra Sarmiento

Frank Rijkaard and VÝctor Mu˝oz have crossed paths on nine occasions since 2003-04 and the Dutchman is in the lead by just one victory over the current Recreativo boss.

The two trainers have met in five league encounters and four matches in the Copa del Rey, with the Barša boss having led his to victory four times and Mu˝oz taking the honours in three games, all when he was in charge of Real Zaragoza. This Saturday's game between the Blaugrana and Recre will be their tenth meeting.

Cup tied

It was the away leg for Barša in the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey and the Aragˇnese side lost the tie thanks to David Villa's goal in Camp Nou. In 2005-06 the two clubs met in the cup again and there was the same outcome as Barša went out after seeing Ronaldinho sent off.

League leader

In the league, Rijkaard has the upper hand as he leads by three wins to one. Mu˝oz was victorious in their first meeting, but Rijkaard has led his ide to victory in the next three. The last time the two coaches met was on March 18, 2006 when Barša won 2-0 and Samuel Eto'o was outraged after was racially abused in La Romareda.
