Transportation question

Hello, we will be arriving in Barcelona in the morning from the States and traveling straight to Zaragoza for day and overnight then on to Madrid the next day. Would you recommend we purchase train tickets for barcelona-zaragoza and/or zaragoza-Madrid in advance? Would this save money or give us better choice of seats? Thanks so much!!

Not an expert, not even from Spain, but from personal experience we just bought our tickets from Renfe online and note that they do offer online purchase discounts, we have also read about other promotions like early bird etc if we buy via the website so I reckon it does save a fair bit plus lessen the hassle of getting tickets at the ticketing box, especially in Barcelona where I heard can be rather busy. However we weren't given a choice of seats so am afraid I can't help you with that info, though tbh I'll love to be able to chose as siting on a seat facing backwards makes me sick ... HTH
