Valencia CF fans can be nothing but proud of their team, after yet another good showing this season.

Saturday’s game highlights that things are going well, that the team can compete against anyone and that the future is bright. Valencia CF have returned to Spanish football’s top table.

Despite ending a brilliant run of form, which saw Valencia CF take eight wins from their last nine games, Marcelino’s side showed that they deserve to be in the upper reaches of the table. The team have their style set and are heading down the right path, with Champions League football within touching distance.

The visitors managed 17 shots, while Ernesto Valverde’s side had 12.
