Valencia CF travelled to visit Bulgaria to play Ludogorets & won 0 - 3 virtually sealing their place in the Q/Finals of the Europa League barring an accident in the return match at Valencia. Top match from the Spaniards that were down to 10 men from the 23rd min when midfielder Keita was sent off with a red card. Valencia pulled together as a team to play better & latter take the match.
The goals came for Valencia CF from Barragan in the 3rd min, Fede in the 33rd min & Senderos in the 58th min.
Ludogorets lost a man in the 80th min when Juninho Quixada received a red card.
The first blow tonight was given by Real Betis which won 0 - 2 Sevilla FC & puts them in a strong advantage for the return match. Real Betis in European competition is a different team from the Spanish Liga where they are sitting last. A transformed Betis tonight that could have finished with more goals had Sevilla goalie Beto not intervened in critical moments.
