But it was a lead that would only last six minutes, as Pablo Piatti's header equalised the matched. However, Valencia were not allowed much time to celebrate either, thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo header from a free-kick to make it 1-2.

The second half was a more even-sided affair and Nico Estévez's men came out in search of an equaliser. They found it in the 62nd minute when Jeremy Mathieu beat Diego López with a header from a corner. The goal proved to be a moral boost for Valencia, who went all out for victory. However, as the final whistle drew near, the young Jesé stepped up to beat Vicente Guaita from outside the box.
