Valencia sign a penalty against UD Las Palmas their second victory

He Valencia won to the palms this Friday in Mestalla, with a Pepelu’s goal from eleven meters (m.74), after a game in which the Canarian team, inoperative in attack, failed to disturb a local group who ran into a great Álvaro Valles and who adds his second consecutive victory in the league start.

The Valencian painting he sought from the first bar to get ahead in his first home game and endorse the good feelings of Seville with an eleven identical to that of the first day, while Las Palmas, with the novelty of Munir El Haddadi in attack, suffered with the Valencian drive.

After a first attack by Diego López on the left, Almeida got tangled up in the box without a hole surrounded by several yellow shirts, Hugo Duro missed the first control when he stood alone in front of Álvaro Valles and Fran Pérez sent a cross wide of Gaya. Three first and quick warnings from the Baraja team after eight minutes of the game.

Las Palmas wanted to react to the Valencian siege with a counterattack led by Sandro, but Cenk was attentive to the cut. But Valencia, fast in transitions and with hardly any touches between their midfielders, advanced eagerly and returned to the charge with a plugged-in Diego López, who controlled a cross with his chest and unleashed a left-footed shot that Valles avoided with his foot.

The Canarian team, before the defensive forcefulness of the valencianistas, could only create danger from set pieces. After twenty minutes, a shot from Javi Muñoz after a corner kick was deflected by the black and white defense and, in an attack by Viera after a long kick from Valles, Mamardashvili came out to spoil the occasion.

Las Palmas, who suffered Sinkgraven’s injury, needed to finish the plays, an aspect that García Pimienta had an impact on during the hydration break, but they failed to follow their coach’s guidelines and the first half ended with a providential hand from Valles in a one-on-one with Thierry.

The second part began with the change of Lemos for the loanee Julián Araujo and with Jonathan Viera pressing the ball out to make the Valencian players uncomfortable, who were imprecise in the first minutes, while Las Palmas was much looser in attack with two shots from Viera and Araujo that went wide.

Deck introduced to Javi Guerra to look for the winning goal as happened in Seville and, on the first ball he touched, the Valencian assisted Diego López, who ran into a very sure Valles again.

With the passing of the minutes and the suffocating heat of a Mestalla -somewhat decaffeinated by the closure of the animation stands for two games-, the rhythm dropped, but in minute 72, from a great rabona cross from Thierry a hand from Javi Muñoz arrived in the area which was reviewed by the VAR and marked as a penalty.

Pepelu did not fail from eleven meters to overtake the valencianistas (m.74) in what is his first goal with the black and white elastic. On the next play, Hugo Duro had the second in his boots, but his shot went straight to Valles.

Las Palmas tried unsuccessfully to disturb Valencia in the last stretch. The only shot on goal for the Canaries, who previously had a dangerous approach with a Benito free-kick that skimmed the post, came in added time with a shot from Pejiño that went straight to Mamardashvili.
