Valencia CF coach Pako Ayestarán emphasised their strong first half performance in the 4-1 friendly victory over FC Ilves.
"The objective was to put in practice the things that we were working on in training so as to arrive for the first game of the season with a clear style of play," he said.
"During the first half I think we did quite a lot of things that we have been working on but then in the second half due to several circumstances it was tougher for us.
"In my opinion playing internationally in countries where we haven’t been before is an opportunity to spread the Valencia name. It is always great to see the fans."
