Valencia picked their first Champions League victory for this season with a 3-1 win against Swiss side Young Boys at the Mestalla on Wednesday night to pile pressure on Manchester United.
Valencia lost their opening game against Juventus at the Mestalla before picking two away draws against Manchester United and Young Boys.
However, Valencia drew the first blood through Mina in the 14th minute by passing the ball into an empty net with the easiest of finishes following a good combination between Rodrigo and Carlos Soler whose shot had hit the post.
The visitors levelled through Roger Assalé in the 36th minutes of the game.
Santi completed his brace for the night in the 42nd minute with Soler providing the assist this time with the first half ending at 2-1.
The hosts continued the same manner they had played in the first half and Soler went on to extend Valencia’s lead.
Young Boys were later reduced to 10-men after Sekou Sanogo was shown a red card for a nasty challenge on former Arsenal midfielder, Francis Coquelin.
The match finished 3-1 and Valencia got the first Mestalla win and in the Champions League, which meant that Valencia CF would take the second place ahead of the match between Juventus and Manchester United at the Juventus Stadium.
They will now focus on their weekend La Liga game against Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on the 12th of November.
