Valencia 0-3 Swansea City, Europa League Match Highlights

Swansea City completely outplayed Valencia today in their first game of the Europa League Group Stage, recording the Welsh club’s first win on the European continent since 1982 — 31 years ago.

Swansea silenced the Valencia fans at the Mestalla when record signing Wilfried Bony opened the scoring for the Swans in the 13th minute. From then on, it was all Swansea — who were aided by Rami being red carded in the 10th minute for a foul on Bony to prevent a goal scoring opportunity.

It was a historic victory by the Swansea side who looked at ease on the European stage.

Swansea played in their away strip of purple and yellow.

    Swansea were always going to do well tonight given Valencia’s poor form of late and when Valencia went down to 10 men in the 10th minute then there was always going to be one winner.

    I expect both Spurs and Swansea to make an impact on the Europa League this season. Spurs with their depth should get to the semis at least. The way Swasnea have been playing in the Europa League so far they could go far as well.

    That’s so cool. Since I mostly watch the EPL, I never know quite how to react to those people who agitate about how all the other leagues are really better.

    I know that one game doesn’t really mean anything, but it is nice to see Swansea (a mid-table EPL club) smash a Top 5 La Liga club on the road. Anything that upsets hipsters… 🙂
