Valencia CF 4-2 PSV Eindhoven
It was a game in which Valencia shined for their quick plays and offensive power. Dani Parejo especially showcased his ability once again.
Valencia got things started off early, with attacks from the side and greater possession it was only a matter of time before they would convert the first.
Pablo Hernández finds a good ball to Victor Ruiz after a corner, in which the Spanish defender heads it home. Only ten minutes have passed.
It was only two minutes later, before Soldado scored after getting a great assist from Barragán beating two rivals before making space and passing the ball to the number nine. Valencia were off to an extravagant start.
Ricardo Costa got injured and was replaced in the 23rd minute after seeming to have pulled his hamstring before a cross.
Valencia once again dominated and got a penalty in the 40th minute. Soldado converted it for a 3-0.
A great pass to Piatti from Parejo in the 55th minute, left him one on one with the keeper, and Piatti scored.
With eight minutes remaining, a penalty was called on a slide tackle Mathieu did on Strootman. Ola Toivonen converted it as well, for the away sides first of the night.
