Valencia squander lead to draw at Valladolid


Share post:


MADRID: Valencia’s poor away form continued when Aly Cissokho scored and was later sent off after conceding a penalty in a 1-1 draw at Real Valladolid in La Liga on Sunday.

Valencia had drawn one and lost four of their five away games this term and they had to hang on for the final half hour with 10 men at Valladolid after Cissokho was shown a straight red in the 64th minute.

The French fullback, who had nodded his side ahead in the 14th minute, felled Julian Omar in the area and Victor Perez stroked the spot kick to make it 1-1.

With 11 matches played, Valencia have 15 points in ninth, with Valladolid in eighth also on 15 but are one place ahead thanks to a superior goal difference.

On Saturday, Rayo Vallecano beat Celta Vigo 3-2 at home, while Espanyol lost 0-3 to Osasuna.

In a goalfest, Real Zarragoza overcame Deportivo 5-3 and Real Sociedad won away to Malaga 2-1, after the latter suffered a hangover after making the Champions League knock-out stage last week. (Reuters)
