Mestalla created a great atmosphere again and applauded their team off the field

More than 47,000 fans crammed into Mestalla for Saturday’s main event

The fans are united, stay by their team’s side and at Mestalla they did just that on Saturday. When the players were ready to come out to kick the game off, the fans were making sure that there was an electric atmosphere, complete with a tifo and some clappers provided by club sponsor Sesderma. During the warm up, too, chants rang out for Jaume Domenech, the hero of Valencia CF’s midweek penalty shootout victory in the Copa del Rey.

There is a bond between the players and their fans this season, it helps the team to feel more comfortable out on the pitch, but the spirit was punctured somewhat when the referee pointed to the spot in the 14th minute. Despite that set back, the fans roared back into life and tried to urge their players towards an equaliser, although Estrada Fernandez would point to the spot once again.

When Santi Mina made it 1-2 in the 58th minute, Mestalla exploded. The atmosphere grew fierce again, with every corner being met with expectation and noise. The 47,000 fans in attendance helped to provide Valencia CF with a 12th man, despite the 1-4 defeat. Regardless of the result, the fans applauded their players off for the fighting performance that they had put in against Real Madrid.
