Valencia's 1×1: Diakhaby seals the maximum penalty for Valencia

Cillessen: Little could do in the four goals of Ilicic. He was intelligent when it came to taking the ball, because he realized that the pressure besieged the centrals and went on to make all the long throws.

Gayà: Physically he was overcome by Ilicic and Hateboer, however, he knew how to stop the second, whom he already knew from the first leg. His attack arrivals were not as decisive as other days.

Diakhaby: Out of it. Celades said after Garay was injured that it was time for the French to take a step forward, however, today in Mestalla one of his worst performances of the year was set. When the minute of play had not been fulfilled, he committed a penalty on Ilicic after falling into the Slovenian player's cut. And when his team looked for 2-1 before leaving for the break, he extended his hand incomprehensibly to commit, again, another penalty. He went to the sunken rest.

Coquelin: Insurance. The usual midfielder exhibited good qualities as a central, taking into account especially the attack in front of him. To this is added that when his team attacked he climbed almost to a three-quarter zone to support his teammates.

Wass: He had to dance one more day with Papu Gómez and did not let him shine as much as in the first game. It was noted that the Danish had studied the Italian attacker and did not give him excessive spaces.

Kondogbia: Extraordinary cutting balls in the center of the field and with trade as central. The Central African international knew when and how to exercise to reduce the intentions of the rival. In the second half he left his team unprotected behind because he climbed desperately in search of the goal.

Equal: He taught a lesson in the midfield, both in attack and defense. He barely made mistakes in the ball out even though the pressure of Gasperini's was more than intense. He gave the goal pass to Ferran Torres with a 20-meter low level service.

To usually do: Good physical work of the midfielder. His was the steal of the ball that led to Gameiro's first goal and also defensive aids to prevent his team from fitting more. He left a spout for the memory of Gosens

Ferran: Woke up. After a loose first half, his second 45 minutes were in line with what his season is going on. He put the center of Kevin Gameiro's second goal on a plate and scored a petroleum jelly that gave his team hope.

Rodrigo: His team appreciated his return. He was very active during the 75 minutes he played, searched Gameiro between the lines in the play that was the first goal. In addition, he tried from outside the area a couple of times, but in both he ran into the Italian goal.

Gameiro: Goal scorer. Smell returned him on the best possible day, but his goals were of little use. In the first goal he showed the quality to cut the goal and turn on himself, in the second power forward to head the net a good center of Ferran.


Guedes: He changed the face of the game. Like the day of Betis, its electricity came from pearls to a team which helped it to get ahead. But when Atalanta scored the third, Guedes and Valencia went out.

Cheryshev: His claw helped the team, but he was not able to wake him from the lethargy he entered when he received the third goal.

Florenzi: He barely participated.
