Valencia finally got back to winning ways with a 4-0 victory over Deportivo, their first win in six weeks. Quique Flores put out an all Spanish line up for the first time, and it paid off when Angulo fired in Vicente's cross to open the scoring early on. But the turning point came when David Villa fell under a challenge from Juanma in the area close to half time, referee Delgado Ferreira awarding a penalty and showing the defender a much protested second yellow card.

Villa converted the kick himself, and Caparrós pulled back Coloccini in to defence. Neither side caused too many problems though until a quarter of an hour from the end, when Baraja played a long ball over Coloccini for Villa to run on and score his second. Substitute Adrián almost got one back, but with the game coming to an end Vicente wrapped things up, beating Aouate at the second attempt after a first shot was blocked by his own man.
