Valencia-Real Madrid

Last night Valencia outplayed Real Madrid in Mestalla, and won 3-0 on goals by Mata, Silva and Baraja (a gorgeous strike). It is true that after losing 2-6 at home to Barcelona, Real Madrid has little to play for, but that doesn't make Valencia's victory less important! With three matches left of the league, Valencia is positioning itself for a Champions League spot, and even putting pressure on Sevilla in third place. A victory such as this against Real Madrid should only increase the players' confidence ahead of what will surely be a dramatic match next week against the local rivals of Villarreal, who are also pursuing a Champions League spot!

Amunt Valencia!
