Six-goal thriller

MADRID - Valencia missed the chance to move into fourth place in La Liga as Sergio Garcia's 94th minute goal salvaged a 3-3 draw

for Espanyol in a crazy finale at Cornella El-Prat. Mubarak Wakaso had given the hosts a deserved lead in first-half stoppage time,

but Valencia improved greatly after the break and were level eight minutes after the restart when Ever Banega released Sergio Canales to score his first goal of the season. Joan Verdu then restored Espanyol's advantage nine minutes from time, but Valencia had appeared to have snatched all three points when two goals in four minutes from Jonas and Roberto Soldado handed them the lead for the first time in stoppage time. Yet, with the last kick of the game Garcia outmuscled Victor Ruiz and lifted the ball into the roof of the net from a tight angle to secure the hosts a point.
