Zaragoza meanwhile couldn't continue their good form on the road last time out as they surrendered meekly to Atletico Madrid last weekend.
And manager Manolo Jimenez has a selection headache ahead of the trip to Valladolid four players out suspended.
Cristian Sapunaru's absence is likely to mean Franco Zuculini will have to play at right-back with Jose Maria Movilla and Javi Alamo coming into midfield.
Valladolid won the opening day fixture between these two 1-0 and although Zaragoza have proven themselves to be stronger away from home than at La Romareda this season, their makeshift defence will make La Pucela favourites to take all three points once more.
Ebert and Oscar Gonzalez will once again be the key men if the hosts are to be successful but Djukic will also be looking for more of a contribution from Daniel Larsson in the continued absence of Manucho up front.
The return of Movilla will help Zaragoza in the midfield area but they are still too reliant on Helder Postiga for goals and if Valladolid can nullify his impact on the game they should emerge victorious.
