Valencia CF concede last gasp equaliser to draw 3-3 away to Osasuna

January, 09 2017 -

Valencia CF showed determination and a cutting edge as they went ahead three times away to CA Osasuna but were held 3-3 after conceding an injury time goal in LaLiga on Monday.

Munir El Haddadi volleyed the blanquinegros ahead after two minutes before Oriol Riera quickly equalised in an open game. Oriol Riera headed into his own goal before the break and while Roberto Torres struck for Osasuna, Martin Montoya appeared to put Valencia on course for victory. Dani Parejo missed a penalty to add to the lead and then Carlos Clerc grabbed a late equaliser.

Voro took several youth players to Pamplona due to the number of players missing but it was also a show of belief that he has in their potential. Due to injury for Garay and Abdennour’s participation in the African Nations Cup it meant that once again their was a makeshift backline with Mario Suárez partnering Mangala at centre-half.

Valencia got off to a lightening start and could easily have gone ahead in the first minute when Santi Mina shot over in front of goal but they didn’t have to wait much longer to take the lead as a minute later Munir hit a sweet volley into the corner. Siqueira swung in a cross from the left and Munir on the edge of the area connected well with his favourite left foot.

The game was played at a high tempo through the midfield and the rhythm led to chances at both ends. Suárez failed to clear the ball in the Valencia rearguard and Riera nipped in to took the ball home for the equaliser.

Valencia were dangerous going forward with highly rated Carlos Soler playing through the midfield and in particular Munir was a threat to the Osasuna defence down the right for Voro’s side. Siqueira also got forward well down the left wing and put in some dangerous crosses aside from the opening goal.

Munir was close to putting Valencia back in front with a strike that whistled just over the crossbar from 18 yards but Osasuna were also stretching the visitor’s defence at the other end especially down the wings. Sergio Leon was a tricky customer with his balance and dribbling skills, and he had a 15-yard shot that also went narrowly wide.

Valencia restored their advantage thanks to an own-goal from Riera who diverted a Dani Parejo corner past his own goalkeeper on the point of half time.

Osasuna pushed forward more at the start of the second half and Alves produced a fine save to deny Roberto Torres with a shot from the left and then Alex Berenguer blasted over from the centre of the penalty area.

The home side did score through Torres though as he slotted home with his left foot from 20 yards after his first effort was blocked.

Osasuna were pushing forward but it was Valencia who scored again with the ball played across the pitch and a fine ball from Munir found Montoya who showed great composure with his finish.

Valencia could have gone further ahead but a Parejo penalty was saved by Mario Fernández after Santi Mina was fouled by Iván Márquez.

Then in injury time Clerc combined with Jaime and shot past Alves for a share of the points.
