1-1. 63. David Navarro. Got above defence to head in free kick.

Valencia could only draw 1-1 with Slavia Prague on the third day of the Europa League, leaving Unai Emery's side in second place in their group.

Naumov surprisingly put the visitors ahead after Hlousek set him up with just under half an hour gone, and the Chés created little danger until David Navarro took advantage of a hesitant Vaniak to get behind the keeper and head in Pablo's wide free kick in the second half.

The visitors were left with ten men when Ragued was shown a second yellow card, and David Villa and Pablo both hit the woodwork. But with five minutes to go Villa was also sent off for kicking Vomacka in the nether regions in retaliation, and that was where their challenge ended.
