PRIMERA MATCH REPORT

Primera Week 22 - 11 Feb 2017 (12.00 UK)
Real Betis 0 - 0 Valencia
Estadio Benito Villamarin

Saturday saw Real Betis host Valencia in an early kick-off, and the Andalusians were left to rue a string of missed chances.

Alex Alegria had the goal at his mercy, only for Jose Gaya to suddenly appear on the scene and block the striker’s low finish on the line.

At the other end, German Pezzella was lucky not to concede a penalty after he handballed on the end of a Martin Montoya shot.

Petros then hit the post from close range, before Ruben Castro failed to beat Diego Alves from even nearer.

Valencia’s resilient performance was tainted somewhat by a second-half injury to Santi Mina, but Los Che didn’t let up and forced Antonio Adan into an important save down low via substitute Joao Cancelo near the end.
