Valencia 2-0 Deportivo de La Coruna

Paco Alcacer
Valencia have won five and drawn one of their last six La Liga matches

Second-half goals from Daniel Parejo and Paco Alcacer saw Valencia move above Atletico Madrid and into third with victory over Deportivo La Coruna.

Deportivo defended well in the first half but were beaten when playmaker Parejo converted a penalty after Pablo Piatti was tripped by Juanfran Moreno.

Alcacer pounced on a Sofiane Feghouli cut-back to seal a deserved win.

Valencia have won five and drawn one of their last six La Liga matches, while Deportivo remain 16th in the table.

They are just one point above the relegation zone.

Title holders Atletico, who were held by Valencia 1-1 last Sunday, can reclaim third place, which guarantees automatic qualification for next year's Champions League, with a win away to Espanyol on Saturday.
