Gary Neville's first act as Valencia boss is to bring back Alvaro Negredo from the wilderness for tonight's Champions League must-win against Lyon.

The former Manchester City is integrated back into the squad, albeit only as a substitute, after being frozen out by Nuno Santo, allegedly for negative remarks he made about the former Coach's tactics in October.

In the starting line-up, two changes are made from Saturday's 1-1 draw with Barcelona as Joao Cancelo replaces Ruben Vezo at right-back, while Shkodran Mustafi comes in for Aderlan Santos in the middle.

Valencia: Domenech; Cancelo, Mustafi, Abdennour, Gaya; Perez, Parejo. Danilo; Mina, Alcacer, De Paul

Subs: Gorgelin, Kone, Bisevac, Ghezzal, Mvuemba, Malbranque, Beauvue

Lyon: Lopes; Rafael, Yanga-Mbiwa, Morel, Bedimo; Darder, Gonalons, Tolisso; Grenier; Cornet, Lacazette

Subs: Ryan, Santos, Tropi, Fuego, Piatti, Negredo, Gil

Referee: Jug [SLO]
