Levante 0-2 Valencia CF - Player Ratings

Guaita 7 - Had to make few saves, including two difficult shots and did so superbly. Another quality performance from the keeper.
Bruno N/A - Got injured in the early stages and was replaced by Barragan.
Rami 6 - Not as good as he usually is, got beaten twice by direct running and got bailed out by Ruiz, quite poor performance.
Ruiz 7 - Great performance from the young defender, stopped few crucial attacks and bailed out Rami on few occasions as well. Was a rock at the back and even helped out in midfield plentifully.
Mathieu 6 - Had one solid cross that Soldado just barely failed to get to and provided few good attacking opportunities, but defensively was rather weak and got beaten quite a few times.
Feghuoli 7.5 - Great performance by Feghuoli, was all over the pitch involved in pretty much every attack and provided some much needed attacking threat.
Albelda 6 - Did quite well to stop Levantes attacks and provided few basic passes, reliable as always.
Tino 7.5 - Stepped up his game and provided the assist to the first goal and then scored the second goal. Was dominant in the midfield and kept things working. If he continues having performances of this level he can easily dethrone Banega.
Alba 6 - He did quite well in attack, linking up with few of the players, but when going back to defend made a lot of mistakes. Also got tired towards the end and apart from his goal, it wasn't a great performance.
Aduriz 6 - Found himself with few half baked opportunities, but couldn't quite make something out of it.
Soldado 5.5 - Quite lacking and apart from few defensive contributions that was it. Rightfully substituted over Aduriz.
Barragan 6 - Provided a good attacking outlay, went forward as much as possible although with limited success and did well enough defensively. I actually felt more at ease with him playing then with Bruno.
Piatti 5.5 - Full of running in the time he had and did have some good solo runs, although could not create something as Valencia were on the defensive at the time.
Pablo N/A - Not enough time, although he did make quite a bit of mistakes in his short time.
