Valencia CF played versus Real Sociedad on Saturday at 4.15pm kick-off time (CET) at Mestalla on matchday 22 of LaLiga Santander. Valencia CF tried to extend their three-game unbeaten run against the Basque side.

Valencia CF had a slow start to the game trying to get a foothold with Real Sociedad in possession. Geoffrey Kondogbia had the first chance for Valencia CF with a header which was gathered by Geronimo Rulli.  Two minutes later, Santi Mina got on the end of a Jose Luis Gayà ball but it flew just over the quarter hour mark.

The first half between Valencia CF and Real Sociedad finished scoreless with nothing to separate the teams at half-time.

Valencia CF came out in the second half trying to score Geoffrey Kondogbia had the first shot on target but it was gathered by Geronimo Rulli. Moments later Kevin Gameiro took it with his shoulder. Valencia kept on upping the pressure and chances kept on coming first Rocanglia with a free header that went just over and then Rodrigo Moreno with twenty minutes of normal time left to play with a flying header but it went wide following a Cheryshev ball.

Two minutes later, Rodrigo Moreno could no wrap his foot around the ball and his effort was turned around by Geronimo Rulli.  Valencia CF had the last two kicks of the match first through Cristiano Piccini and then Ezequiel Garay whose follow-up shot was blocked deep into stoppage time.

The match between Valencia CF and Real Sociedad finished in a goalless stalemate. Valencia CF will travel to Glasgow to play against Celtic FC in the first leg of the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League on Thursday 14th of February at 8 pm BST where they will look to spread some love among the travelling fans.
