Thursday, December 13, 2012

MADRID - Goals by Daniel Parejo and Roberto Soldado gave Valencia a 2-0 win at Osasuna on Tuesday in the last 16 of Spanish soccer's Copa del Rey.

The match began amid tense midfield exchanges, Valencia proving the more effective team with winger Sofiane Feghouli attempting crosses from the right for striker Jonas.

The best first-half chance came in the 38th minute when Parejo crossed to Jonas but goalkeeper Asier Riesgo pulled off a low, one-handed save.

Parejo finally made the breakthrough with an expertly-taken free kick over the wall to beat Riesgo in the 47th minute.

At the other end, Valencia 'keeper Diego Alves stopped Juan Martinez's attempt in the 74th and did so again with Anthony Annan's shot a minute later.

Soldado tapped home Valencia's second goal in injury time.
