Tonight Spanish Football Club VALENCIA FC hosted French Club PARIS ST GERMAIN to end up going down 1 - 2. Not a good result as the away goals have double weight in case of a drawn agg score after the two matches, but the home goal opens the window of hope for Valencia.
The second goal from the French came in the 44th min when Argentine International PASTORE tapped in his goal from a Lucas Moura play & pass.
The second half saw Valencia put in Canales & Valdez, & the later gave the Spanish midfield more ball control & much better play. The Valencia goalie Guaita also played his part stopping some PSG chances which lifted the spirits of Valencia.
Consistency, hard work & perhaps some "slacking off" by PSG allowed Valencia to be rewarded for their efforts with a very late RAMI goal in the 91st min, a goal that gives the Spaniards some hopes towards thinking about a turn around result in Paris.
Things complicated themselves for Paris St German when Ibrahimovic stupidly won himself a red card for some dangerous play in the 92 rd min that will keep him out of the return clash.
Brave second half for Valencia after a terrible first 45 mins, & a undisciplined second half to PSG which complicated itself unnecessarily & may pay dearly in the return leg.
Advantage now for the French but still open for Valencia as difficult as it now seems.
