The Valencia does not pass the tie in Bern and complicates their situation in the Champions

Valencia could only tie a goal against Young Boys in Bern in a duel in which the Valencians were ahead in the first half but were unable to maintain their advantage against an opponent that was better in the overall score of the game.

Again it was a penalty that deprived the valencianists of the victory, although the team of Marcelino García Toral did not deserve a greater prize than the one obtained and leaves him with only two points added in Group H of the Champions League after of three days played.

The game started with Valencia trying to take possession with the Swiss team waiting to build the backlash, which he did very quickly and in search of Horaru, his most advanced player.

However, as the first few minutes were passed it was Young Boys who took the ball and had the best chances to test Neto with pitches from Sulejmani and Horaru.

After 20 minutes of play, Valencia recovered and controlled the situation more. He braked the Swiss midfield and began to have longer possessions and to approach the goal defended by Wolfli.

As a result of that improvement Valencia managed to open the scoring after a recovery of Soler ball, who attended the gap to Batshuayi, who drew Wolfli's exit and beat the local goal.

The goal led to Valencia to calm the game and take control of the game. It advanced its defense to complicate the exit of ball of the Young Boys. In fact, in the last quarter of an hour the team of Gerardo Seoane scarcely went around the Valencia goal, while Parejo, Batshuayi and Ferran Torres put Wolfli in trouble.

The Young Boys came out better in the second half against a doubtful Valencia again. In five minutes the Swiss team accumulated three good chances to beat Neto, with a shot from Sulejmani that was high, a header by Fassnacht and, the best of all, starring Mbabu, who was left alone against Neto but missed a goal. bad auction.

But the prize for Young Boys came in the 55th minute after a penalty committed by Parejo and that transformed Hoarau to do justice to the local superiority at the beginning of the second period.

Valencia were on the ropes and, after a good counter by the Swiss, Neto saved the second goal by deflecting a cross from Fassnacht.

Far from improving, Valencia was overwhelmed by his rival and still did not pass from the center of the field a Valencia totally overflowed in defense still suffering from the attacks of Young Boys.

The entry of Gameiro and Coquelin gave more consistency to Valencia and managed to stop the dominance of the Young Boys and disturb the area of ​​the Swiss team, which lowered the initial intensity of this period.

Despite the approaches of Valencia, Wolfli did not go through serious difficulties, while Young Boys, more calm, looking for a backlash with which to take the three points at stake.
