    • Valencia CF
    • Bursaspor
    • 90+3 Final whistle is blown. A night to forget for Bursaspor as they crash out but all cheer for Valencia who go through to the final 16.
    • 90' Three minutes of second half injury time to be played.
    • 87' And so we are into the final stages in what has been a very one sided affair at the Mestalla.
    • 83' Final substitution made by the Turkish side. Yildirim off and Ismail Odabasi on.
    • 80' Glorious football from Valencia almost adds a seventh goal as Mata is foiled by Ivankov at the final hurdle
    • 78' the goals keep on coming as Dominguez makes an impact from the bench. Real route one stuff as Guaita's long punt releases Domingues and he finds the back of the net.
    • 77' GOAL FOR VALENCIA! 6-1!
    • 75' Yellow card shown to Albelda for bringing Aziz down on the half way line.
    • 72' Serious discomfort for Yildirim who is struck in the groin region.
    • 70' Valencia prompted into making another change after that goal. Soldado given a rest and Alarconi Isco is given his Champions League debut.
    • 69' Shock, horror for all concerned as substitute Batalla scores Bursaspor's first Champions League goal with a simple tap in from Yildirim's low cross.
    • 68' GOAL FOR BURSASPOR! 5-1!
    • 67' With things as they are Valencia will sail into the knockout stages of the competition and have top spot in Group C well within their sights.
    • 65' Valencia continuing to dominate here and do not be surprised if more goals come.
    • 63' Bursaspor's Insua looks to be in some discomfort and the physios are called for.
    • 62' Soldado denied a hat-trick as Ivankov tips his header over for a corner kick.
    • 60' Valencia with a substitution of their own. Aduriz withdrawn and Alejandro Dominguez introduced.
    • 59' A second change for the visitors. Ivan Ergic the man to depart. Pablo Batalla his replacement.
    • 58' That record was set in the UEFA Cup back in 2001. Their biggest Champions League victory currently stands at 6-2 against FC Basel in 2002
    • 57' Valencia now in record setting territory with victory by a five goal margin their biggest win in UEFA competitions.
    • 56' Yellow card shown to Aziz for another clumsy challenge.
    • 55' Soldado gets his second of the night to make it five in five. The Spaniard easily rounding a stranded Ivankov and slotting into the empty net.
    • 54' GOAL FOR VALENCIA! 5-0!
    • 53' Mata looks for Soldado in the box but his cross drops into comfortable territory for Ivankov.
    • 52' That just about sums up the Turkish side's evening. A long range effort goes horribly, horribly wide.
    • 51' Tino Costa looks to get amongst the goals with an ambitious long shot but he'll have to do better than that. Well wide.
    • 50' Neat turn from Jordi Alba proves to be tood good for substitute Aziz who swipes the feet with a mistimed challenge.
    • 48' Tentative opening to this second period. How hungry are Valencia for goals?
    • 46' A change has been made by Bursaspor with Serdar Aziz given a run out with Vederson takign a breather.
    • 45' We're back under way at the Mestalla. How much pride do the Turkish side have?
    • 45+1 Cheers all round as the referee takes a tumble before bringing the half to its conclusion.
    • 45 One minute of first half injury time to be played.
    • 43' Insua plays it short and Sen tries his luck from distance but fails to trouble Guaita in the Valencia goal.
    • 42' Bursaspor earn a corner with the half time break in sight. Last chance to give themselves a fighting chance in this game.
    • 41' Bursaspor boss Ertugrul Saglam not happy with the offciails after that decision goes against them.
    • 40' Controversy at the Mestalla as Bursaspor believe they should be awarded a penalty after the ball strikes the arm of David Albelda. Seen them given, certainly.
    • 38' Valencia already matching their previous goal haul against Bursaspor on Matchday 1 with over half of the match remaining. With the Ashes on our doorstep we could have a cricket score.
    • 36' This is getting embarrassing now for the Turkish side as Joaquin makes it four with a swerving 25 yard shot that whistles into the top corner with the aid of a slight deflection.
    • 35' GOAL FOR VALENCIA! 4-0!
    • 34' Valencia really cruising towards victory with the damage surely done.
    • 33' Really should have been 4-0 as Soldado goes clear but he is denied by a smart save from the spread-eagled Ivankov.
    • 32' Erdogan towers a header towards goal from a corner swung in from the right but he is first denied by Guaita and then deemed guilty of a foul in the process.
    • 31' The Bursaspor defence caught napping once more to allow Valencia in once more. Strong black coffees all round required to spark some life back there.
    • 30' We have a rout on our hands a Aduriz gets his name on the scoresheet at the second time of asking after first being denied by Ivankov from point blank range.
    • 29' GOAL FOR VALENCIA! 3-0!
    • 28' Mata causing more problems for the Bursaspor defence with a threatening run into the box but he is forced sufficiently wide and runs out of pitch before shooting into the sidenetting.
    • 27' A well choreographed move sees the Valencia defensive line rush out in unison at a Bursaspor free kick leaving their clueless opponents baffled and in offside positions.
    • 26' Long way back for Bursaspor now. Without a single goal in this competition, they seriously have their work cut out.
    • 25' With thanks to the replay which shows Moya pulling up with a thigh injury after kicking the ball earlier in the half.
    • 24' Somewhere in that goalscoring melee, Valencia goalkeeper Moya has picked up an injury that forces him from the field of play and Vicente Guaita takes his place between the posts.
    • 23' Mata it was who turned provider to unlock the Bursaspor defence with a crafty through ball for the Valencia striker.
    • 22' Fantastic goal from Soldado who scores his fourth goal of the campaign with a well placed shot across Ivankov and into the far corner.
    • 21' GOAL FOR VALENCIA! 2-0!
    • 20' That goal looks to have settled the home side who look much more comfortable in possession
    • 19' And so Valencia have the lead but they can consider themselves lucky after Bursaspor started much the brighter.
    • 18' Juan Mata steps up and drives the ball straight down the middle with Ivankov diving helplessly to his right.
    • 17' GOAL FOR VALENCIA! 1-0
    • 16' Omer Odergan is adjudged to have swept the legs of Aritz Aduriz in the penalty area and the referee points to the spot and awards a yellow card.
    • 15' Penalty to Valencia!
    • 14' Vederson it is who swings the ball into the box and Moya punches clear rather unconvincingly
    • 13' Neat foot work from Yildirim draws the foul and Bursaspor have a free kick in a dangerous position.
    • 12' A real let off for the Spanish side there who looked totally exposed in defence.
    • 11' Golden opportunity for Bursaspor and Yildirim to open the scoring. The visitors hit Valencia on the break and with Moya rushing off his line the striker looks to have done everything right with a delictae lob but the ball drops wide of goal.
    • 10' Bursaspor more than holding their own in the opening exchanges of this match.
    • 9' Moment of danger for Valencia as first Federico Insua and then Volkan Sen have a chance to put Bursaspor ahead but the home side somehow survive.
    • 8' Good sliding challenge from Ricardo Costa brings a Bursaspor attack to a sudden halt.
    • 7' Eager goalkeeping from Valencia's Migual Angel Moya who comes charging out of his goal to sweep up a loose ball when his defenders looked to be in control of the situation
    • 6' Bursaspor still seeking their first goal of the competition after failing to register on the scoresheet in the previous four outings.
    • 5' First clear cut chance goes the way of the home side as Soldado tees up his captain Joaquin who blasts his shot clear of the crossbar from 15 yards.
    • 4' The clearance did not come without a cost however as Gokcek Vederson is left requiring treatment
    • 3' Dangerous cross from the left from Juan Mata causes much indecision in the Bursaspor defence but goalkeeper Dimitar Ivankov does enough to clear the danger.
    • 2' First foul of the evening commited by Bursaspor striker Sercan Yildirim. Free kick goes the way of Valencia
    • 1' With a blast of the referee's whistle we are underway at the Mestalla with Bursaspor kicking from right to left.
    • 19:45 The teams are out and we're all set for another exciting night of Champions League football.
    • 19:40 70% of Bursaspor’s shots have come from outside the box, a competition-high in the Champions League.
    • 19:35 The win over Rangers ended a run of six home games without a win in the Champions League for Valencia at the Mestalla.
    • 19:30 Bursaspor are only the third team ever to have earned zero points and also failed to score after four matches of a Champions League group following in the footsteps of Anderlecht in 2005-06 and Maccabi Haifa last season.
    • 19:25 If Rangers lose, then a draw will be enough to take Valencia through to the next round.
    • 19:20 If Rangers fail to defeat Man Utd in tonight's other Group C match, then a victory for Valencia will see the Spanish side through to the Last 16.
    • 19:15 On their only previous encounter on Matchday 1, Valencia ran out 4-0 winners with goals coming from Costa, Adruiz, Hernandez and Soldado.
