It was a perfect Wednesday. Very valuable victory of Valencia CF in the Champions League, goals and, above all, great joy for the fans of Mestalla. Everything started very soon. It was the 14th minute when Santi Mina debuted scoring in Europe this season and achieved his first goal in his sixth match in the Champions since landing in Valencia in the 2015-16 campaign. And in the 42nd minute he made it two when he clinched an impressive pass from Carlos Soler with his toe.
And then Carlos Soler appeared, who also wanted to be protagonist this afternoon in Mestalla. After the break, with a tight 2-1 on the scoreboard, it marked their first goal of the season and first also in the Champions League in their fourth match in the great continental club tournament.
Mestalla was completely devoted to the team and gave a great ovation to Santi Mina when he was replaced by Gameiro in the 68th minute. The fans, standing up, said goodbye to the Galician striker, who also thanked the public in Mestalla with an applause when leaving the pitch. In the end, three gold points in the group stage.
