Nuno Santo felt Valencia could have sealed the points sooner against Gent but is already looking ahead to the return game.
Los Che beat the Belgians 2-1 with the winner coming in the second half, Stefan Mitrovic credited with the decisive own goal.
“We could have settled the game in the first half but the important thing is to produce and convert the chances, but the players scored the goals,” Nuno said, AS reports.
“Gent, again, were very well organised with possession, with a great striker who caused a lot of problems. Now we have to go there. It will be a tough game.”
