Valencia CF 4-1 Rayo Vallecano Player Ratings

Guaita 6 - Wasn't troubled too much and dealt with what Rayo threw at him comfortably.
Barragan 6 - Good defensive display, but lacked drive going forward and was mostly content to sit back.
Rami 6.5 - Another good performance by Rami, two games in a row now and he looks more reliable right now.
R. Costa 6.5 - As Rami, Ricardo Costa had a good showing and has been reliable when called upon, scoring a goal as well that was not allowed.
Mathieu 6 - Did well to stop Lass who is on Valencia's radar and was secure in defense. Didn't venture forward too much.
Topal 6.5 - Another quality and reliable showing by Topal who was great in his defensive duties.
Tino 5.5 (FotM) - Reserved match from Tino, who's contribution was only few standard passes.
Feghuoli 7.5 (MotM) - Man of the match performance by Feghuoli who managed to assist two goals today and was a real danger for Rayo in the second half.
Pablo 6 - Scored a goal in the late stages of the match, but his contribution otherwise was limited.
Jordi Alba 6.5 - Wasn't particularly effective in the first half, but improved in the second and went on to score the second goal for Valencia.
Jonas 7.5 - Great match in his first match this season as a real striker. Scored two goals, albeit one from a penalty, but was dangerous with his movement and provided good outlet for attack.
Parejo 6 - Came in for Tino and was more effective in keeping possession and spreading the ball.
Canales 6.5 - Came in for the first time after a long injury and had great success with good movement and passing, managing to get an assist as well.
Maduro N/A - Not enough time.
