Valencia stay within two points of fourth placed Real Sociedad after a last minute 2-1 victory over ten man Valladolid. The Ches totally dominated the first half, and only a series of saves by Dani Hernández from Jonas, Canales and Soldado kept the visitors in the game. Shortly before half time however he could do nothing when Matieu headed on a Tino Costa corner, and the ball hit Balenziaga to bounce back in to the net. Omar Ramos finally gave Guaita some work to do at the start of the second half, but soon afterwards the locals were awarded a penalty when Sereno brought down Soldado in the area, the defender having to leave the field of play after picking up a second booking for the foul. Hernández saved Soldado's spot kick however, and a few minutes later Oscar made it all square after running on to Rukavina's cross to fire a shot in to the top corner of the net. That appeared to be it, but with the game in injury time Rami took a quick throw which should have been taken by the visitors, and Jonas headed in Jonathan Viera's cross to give his team the three points.
