Valencia CF 4-2 PSV Eindhoven - Player Ratings

Diego 6 - Had one good save and decent in the air punching several crosses. Couldn't do anything about the goals.
Barragan 6 - Started brilliantly and involved in a lot of attacks, providing 1 assist and dealt with danger at the back, but then in the final moments allowed PSV to score the second goal.
R. Costa 5 - Not troubled when he was on the field, injured himself and replaced by Rami.
Ruiz 7 - Great performance by Ruiz, defended very good and scored a goal as well.
Mathieu 5 - Decent performance in attack and defense, allowed the cross to be made that lead to the second PSV goal and gave away the penalty.
Albelda 5 - Quite ineffective, run away from the ball and never available to be played on. Got tired towards the end and allowed PSV to mount attack after attack.
Parejo 7 - Good performance by the former Getafe man, good skills on the ball and good passing all round, provided an assist as well.
Pablo 5 - Not too involved and while he had some forward forays, wasn't particularly effective.
Jonas 5.5 - Did well with his passing and has good vision, but should have done better with some of the shooting opportunities he had.
Piatti 7.5 (MotM) - Man of the match performance from Piatti who created the first goal, scored the fourth goal and was very active and dangerous thought the match.
Soldado 7 - Scored two goals, albeit one from a penalty.
Rami 4 (FotM) - Miserable performance from the French. I'm starting to dislike him and I don't think he should be allowed to play for the rest of the season. I just don't think he is good enough.
Bernat 4 - Did nothing of note and missed a great opportunity to put Valencia up by 5 goals.
Aduriz 5 - Had one decent chance, but other than that wasn't very threatening.
