Oliveira earns Zaragoza draw with Racing
MADRID, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Brazilian striker Ricardo Oliveira scored a late goal to grab a point for Real Zaragoza in their 1-1 home draw with Racing Santander in the Primera Liga on Saturday.
Racing took the lead against the run of play when Oscar Serrano struck early in the second half but Zaragoza's persistent pressure paid off when Oliveira reacted quickly to score from close range in the 75th.
In the day's other game, Levante were held to a goalless draw at home by Real Murcia.

Sevilla's game at Osasuna has been postponed as they face AEK Athens in their rearranged Champions League third qualifying round second leg, in Greece on Monday.
The change in fixtures was caused by the death of Sevilla midfielder Antonio Puerta last Tuesday. A minute's silence was held at the start of both of the evening's games.
Zaragoza, who are expected to challenge for a Champions League place this season, lost 2-1 against promoted Real Murcia last weekend and found the going tough against Racing.
Oliveira rattled the crossbar early on and his Argentine strike-partner Diego Milito forced Racing goalkeeper Tono into a couple of saves before the break.
But it was the visitors who took the lead, when a corner was only cleared to the edge of the area in the 55th minute and Serrano's low shot crept inside the far post.
A stunning one-handed save by Tono denied Milito again soon after, but he could nothing about the equaliser as Roberto Ayala's powerful header from a corner was deflected across the goal for the lurking Oliveira to score.
It was the Brazilian's second goal in as many games since moving on loan from AC Milan during the close season.
