Valencia are the only Spanish side to be sure of a place in the last 32 despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Club Brugge in the Mestalla stadium. With an important league match against Barcelona in two days' time, coach Unai Emery put out a line-up packed with reserves.
They went behind though when Alcaraz headed in a Vargas free kick late in the first half, and only a good save by Goitia from Vargas prevented the Belgian side from increasing the lead after the break. Soon afterwards however Zigic equalised with a header from Hugo Viana's corner, and the Ches almost won it when Pablo Hernández's deflected free kick went just wide later on.
