Result: Valencia and Kuban Krasnodar share the spoils

Kuban Krasnodar fail to reach the next round of the Europa League following their 1-1 draw with Valencia.

Valencia have drawn 1-1 with Kuban Krasnodar in the Europa League this evening, meaning that the Russian side have failed to progress to the next round of the tournament.

The home side created the first opportunity after 11 minutes as Michel unleashed a wild shot from 25 yards, which swerved just wide of the post.

The Valencia man was in the thick of it again soon after when he saw his header crash back off of the crossbar as the hosts went in search of the lead.

The visitors looked dangerous on the counter and they almost made Valencia pay in the second half as Djibril Cisse broke free only to find his shot saved, before the striker was wasteful again as the ball dropped to him inside the box without a defender in sight.

The home side finally took the lead on the 67th minute as Ever Banega played a well-crafted long ball over the defence to allow Paco Alcacer to dribble past the keeper and finish from a tight angle.

However, Kuban pulled level in the 84th minute when Lorenzo Melgarejo converted with an easy header to bring his side back into the game.
