Valencia are up to second in the table after a high scoring 3-6 win at Betis in the last match on Sunday! Two in the first half from Kondogbia and Guedes, and two after the break from Rodrigo and Santi Mina appeared to have wrapped things up. However the locals (who had an earlier Sergio León penalty after Kondogbia handled in the area) came back with three in five minutes from Joel Campbell, Sanabria and Tello before Zaza and Pereira put the game beyond their reach near the end.
