FULL TIME at the Mestalla . What a game as Valencia run out 4-3 winners against the very unlucky Malaga ! Thank you for joining us on Goal.com !
Yellow Card Apoño
Assist Roberto Soldado
Goal Aritz Aduriz Zubeldia
Unai Emery and the Valencia fans ooze relief after their fourth goal.
Miguel sends Soldado down the right hand side of the box who squares the ball back to Aduriz who finishes first time in to the Malaga goal . Valencia lead 4-3 !
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for Valencia !
HUUUUUUUUUUUY ! Tino Costa whips a fantastic ball across the six yard box but Aduriz does not react quickly enough and the ball bounces off the chest and safely in to the hands of Asenjo.
Malaga have played this game with real passion , and have showed so much determination with 9 men to get back in to the game.
Manuel Pellegrini is also sent to the stand for Malaga.
HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUY ! Aduriz with a great headed chance from 7 yards but sends the ball well over the bar !
Goal Júlio Baptista
Julio Baptista receives the ball through on goal , but comes inside the Valencia defence and whips the ball past Guaita in the bottom right hand corner. Great goal !
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for Malaga !
Considering that Valencia have a two man advantage , they should be working the ball better around the Malaga box.
Malaga are playing with basically no width at the moment . If Valencia can take advantage of the space , they will certainly create some chances from cross balls.
Valencia should be seeying the game out with the player advantage that they have , but Malaga will certainly not be giving up this game.
Malaga face a very tough task now. One goal down and two men down. They dont really have alot to lose in the game now !
Yellow Card Sergio Asenjo
Goal Ever Banega
Ever Banega latches on to a loose ball outside the box after a Valencia corner and smashes the ball into the bottom corner. Brilliant finish from the Argentinian !
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for Valencia !
Red Card Hélder Rosario
Helder Roario said something to the assistant referee and he sees red , Malaga are down to 9 men !
Rosario is sent off for Malaga !
Unlucky for Juan Mata. The Spaniard runs on to a loose ball just outside the Malaga box but pulls his shots wide of the Malaga goal. Valencia are getting closer and closer to gaining the lead.
Ever Banega has been very effective for Valencia since his introduction. The home side had been lacking in a creative entity in the first half of the game.
Again Miguel gets in to a good position down the right hand side but his cross evades all the Valencia players in the box.
Valencia now have momentum in the game and you feel that they may take use their man advantage to tire the Malaga players.
Assist Pablo Hernández
Goal Roberto Soldado
Roberto Soldado makes an instant impact in the game , latching on to a pass from Pablo , the Spaniard opens up his right foot and slots the ball just past the goalkeeper in to the bottom right corner.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for Valencia !
Tino Costa has been Valencia's brightest player in the game , if they are to create some chances , you would feel that he would have something to do with it.
Slow start to the second half , Valencia have brought on Roberto Soldado in order try and convert some chances.
The second half has started and Valencia will need to show more attacking flair if they are to get anything from the game.
The half time whistle brings a very entertaining first 45 minutes to a close. Join us in 15 minutes for the second half !
Unlucky from Julio Baptista as he cuts inside and brilliantly bends the ball towards the far corner but it just goes by the post. Great play again from Malaga !
The Valencia wingers have been getting in to effective positions down the flanks but their crosses have been badly executed.
The Valencia forward line have been unable to get any joy against the impressive Malaga defence so far in the game. Valencia have not offered much bar their penalty.
Malaga have been the better team so far in the game , and perhaps should be leading by more than one goal.
Duda with a brilliant whipped in free kick from the left hand side that lands at the feet of Rondon , who easily smashes the ball in !
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for Malaga !
Yellow Card Hedwiges Maduro
Malaga are starting to get more in the game , Julio Baptista has bullied the Valencia defence so far in the match.
Yellow Card Duda
Rondon shows brilliant strength to out muscle Dealbert and bears down on goal only to smash the ball right off Guaita. The Malaga striker should have scored !
The home side are stretching out the game and Malaga are having to work hard to retain possession of the ball , but as of yet Valencia have been wasteful.
Eliseu runs with pace into the Valencia box and goes down expecting a penalty but the Portuguese was judged to have went down too easily by the referee.
Yellow Card Júlio Baptista
Valencia are starting to control possession of the ball , they are taking advantage of having the extra man.
The sending off has put a dampner on the tempo of the game , Maresca has been replaced by defender Gaspar .
Malaga may feel aggrieved about the sending off but Juan Mata was about to strike at goal and the tackle from Demichelis was rash and from behind.
Penalty Goal Juan Mata
Great start to the game at the Mestalla.
Red Card Martín Demichelis
Juan Mata steps up and confidently dispatches the penalty to the left of Asenjo.
Demichelis is sent off for a foul on Mata inside the box just before the Spaniard is about to shoot !
Penalty for Valencia !
Very impressive start to the game from Malaga , they have looked very dangerous when counter attacking at the Valencia defence.
Julio Baptista sends a great pass through to Apono and the winger squares the ball for Rondon who taps the ball in from just outside the six yard box.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for Malaga !
Malaga are controlling possession at the moment. Most of their play is going through the influential Duda down the left hand side.
Good start to the game , both teams are playing with pace and intensity and it looks as though there may be goals in this game !
Malaga have made a bright start to the match , this new look side looks as if they want to make a statement.
Chance for Julio Baptista in the first minute , through on goal for Malaga but Guaita saves down to his left hand side. Very good save !
The game has now kicked off and both teams will be doing all they can to ensure victory.
