Valencia keep pressure on Barcelona

28/10/2017

Valencia extended their winning streak to seven matches to stay on Barcelona's heels at the top of La Liga with a 2-1 victory at Alaves.

The win came thanks to goals from Simone Zaza and Rodrigo, whose second-half penalty restored the lead following an equaliser early in the second half from Alexis.

Zaza fired a powerfully struck opener in the 34th minute, collecting Andreas Pereira's cross from the right and driving the ball high into the near top corner.

Alexis headed a leveller from a corner in the 49th minute, but a deliberate handball close to his own goal from Alaves defender Rodrigo Ely then proved costly.

It allowed Valencia's Rodrigo to slot in the 66th-minute penalty that secured three points, moving Valencia at least temporarily to just one point behind leaders Barcelona.

Barcelona were due in action later on Saturday, with an evening kick-off at Athletic Bilbao.
