Cillessen kicked the ball hard towards Gonçalo Guedes in the 23rd minute, halfway through his own half. The Portuguese came in from the left, passed his direct opponent and then hit the ball into the far corner (1-0).
The goal seemed to be enough for the victory for a long time, until the Argentinian Lucas Boyé equalized fifteen minutes before the end. Thanks to the Italian substitute Cristiano Piccini, who scored in the 86th minute, Valencia still had 3 points left in the game.
Valencia, which is in seventh place in La Liga, has been unbeaten since the end of October (including all competitions and tournaments).
