Valencia picked up a valuable point against Rangers on Wednesday night to keep them on track for a place in the knock-out stage. The Scottish side came out strongly at first, with César having to save from Naismith and Miller, and Miller heading against the post. And with just over half an hour on the clock Edu headed the locals in to the lead, getting in front of the keeper to head a Weiss corner in to the net.
Before the half time whistle Edu hit the post again and Miller failed to convert the follow up, but just a minute after the restart the Spaniards were level when Edu headed Tino Costa's free kick past his own keeper trying to clear. After that there were chances for both sides, with Davis, Naismith and Foster all failing to find the target, Mata firing a shot over the top, and soldado bringing a late save out of McGregor. In the end a point apiece though, and although Valencia ended the day in third spot, two home wins in their next games should see them through.
