Real Valladolid 1 - 1 Valencia
Cissokho 15 (V), Victor Perez pen 64 (RV)
Estadio Nuevo Jose Zorrilla

Former teammates Miroslav Djukic and Mauricio Pellegrino found little to agree with after Real Valladolid’s 1-1 draw with Valencia.

The game hinged on a second-half red card for Aly Cissokho and subsequent penalty that allowed for the hosts to equalise.

Whilst it finished all squad, Djukic felt that his Valladolid deserved more than just the single point.

“Valladolid were very good, we dominated, took the ball and were not going to settle for the draw,” commented the Coach at full-time.

“However, we still did not achieve the fluency of play we wanted, because our opponents were very difficult.

“Valencia firmly shut up at the back and were also very dangerous to us on the counter-attack.”

However, Pellegrino believed that his Valencia were the superior side, even after the red card.

“We are not happy with the result because we wanted to win,” declared the Argentine afterwards.

“It was not a penalty, Omar hit the ground when he saw that Valencia were going to regain the ball.

“The match totally changed with Cissokho’s red card, but for the final eight minutes we still regained control of it. Overall the game was even and they had not had many chances.

“We were organised, but lacked the freshness to subdue Valladolid.”
