Spanish Football Club Valencia CF visited Swiss Club Basilea & lost 3 - 0. The match was played in an empty stadium due to a UEFA sanction & that perhaps added to the "cold" night for Valencia. The Football reason was that Basilea was the far better team & Valencia missed some goal opportunities that they will be cursing themselves flying back home. The goals came in the following order, two from Delgado ( 34th & 38th min ) & the last from Stocker in the 90th min.
The result virtually gives the tie to Basilea which will travel next week to Valencia for the 2º leg match.
Sevilla improved somewhat for the second half & did all it could to keep at bay the Portuguese. Sevilla even had a golden goal chance that Gameiro could not convert that could have dramatically changed the course of the tie. Overall Sevilla can be thankful for this result.
