Valencia Fail to Make Advantage Pay in La Liga


Valencia failed to make their game in hand count in La Liga. Los Che had an opportunity to move two points ahead of Sevilla in the battle to claim a Champions League qualifying spot.

Despite moving into fourth, Valencia are level on 69 points with Sevilla. Los Che had been pitted against Rayo Vallecano in yesterday’s matches (Thursday 30 April), but they could not manage an away win against their mid-table opponents.

Valencia managed to control 56% of possession, while crafting 13 attempts on goal. The only problem was could not outscore Rayo Vallecano in a game that finished 1-1.

Rayo had opened the scoring with an early goal after 19 minutes. Valencia were unable to make a levelling breakthrough until 66 minutes into the game. Los Che could not take advantage of a Rayo red card after 71 minutes, with one of their own sent off just a few minutes later.
