Valencia 4 – 0 Granada
Valencia are back in Champions League zone after defeating the struggling Granada 4-0, as it was requested by the Granada loaned Roberto Ibáñez who did not play last night: “I see VCF finishing 3rd & playing Champions League”.
José Gayà was the only change in the XI, which he celebrated as the Man of the Match according to WhoScored whi put him on La Liga’s team of the week. The 11 starters:
Alves; Barragán, Mustafi, Otamendi, Gayà; Fuego, Parejo, Gomes; Feghouli, Rodrigo, Alcácer.
Fuego opened the score-line in 25th minute with a powerful header on a cross by Parejo, who 5 minutes before half-time took revenge from the penalty-spot – thanks to some rare dribbling by Barragán. Granada were lucky to reach half-time with 11 players, because their left-back and last standing player Insúa made a sliding tackle on Feghouli.
It was still against the odds for Granada, being La Liga’s worst team in the 2nd half by conceding 35 goals & scoring only 11 goals. Nuno used all of his 3 substitutions quite fast in the 2nd half, because he wanted to rest players like André Gomes and Paco Alcácer for the Thursday game in Vallecas. This proved a brilliant idea with De Paul and Negredo collaborating on the two last goals, which were scored by Feghouli and the shark himself. Also, Mestalla welcome Enzo Pérez after more than a month long injury.
Diego Alves kept a clean-sheet for 6th consecutive game (594 minutes) in Mestalla, meaning that he surpassed Balaguer’s club record.
Even more impressive, Valenca are still unbeaten in all 27 home games against Granada (23W, 3D).
