Valencia secure their first La Liga victory in five games after beating Elche 2-1 at the Mestalla this afternoon.

Valencia secured their first La Liga victory in five games after beating Elche 2-1 at the Mestalla this afternoon.

Pablo Piatti's 22nd-minute opener was shortly cancelled out by Coro as both sides went into the half-time break level.

Daniel Parejo was on hand to fire Los Che into the lead once more on the hour mark, before Damien Suarez spurned the opportunity to level matters by missing a penalty.

The visitors were given a glimmer of hope after Antonio Barragan was red-carded in the closing stages but with little time remaining, Elche did not have the chance to capitalise on their numerical advantage.
