FT Valencia 1-1 Real Sociedad
It's all over here at the Mestalla and the game ends all square in dramatic circumstances.

Kevin Gameiro's early second half strike looked certain to give the hosts, who finished with ten men following Francis Coquelin's red card, a winning start to the season but a penalty in the 11th minute of stoppage time from Mikel Oyarzabal ensures that Real Sociedad don't begin the season with a defeat.

 

GOAL! 90+11' Valencia 1-1 REAL SOCIEDAD

Oyarzabal sends Cillessen the wrong way from 12 yards to surely snatch Sociedad a point

90+10' PENALTY!

Willian José's free kick is blocked by the hand of Coquelin and the visitors have a chance to equalise at the death. The midfielder is shown his second yellow card and sent off

90+8' Ezequiel Garay is booked for bringing down Isak right on the edge of the area

Last chance here...

90+7' Kondogbia fires a shot over the bar
90+5' MISSED

There's still a chance for an equaliser as Gameiro blasts his spot kick high over the bar

85' The final roll of the dice for the away side as Kevin Rodrigues replaces Aihen Muñoz
84' Rodrigo comes off to a standing ovation from the home support. He's replaced by Denis Cheryshev
82' Jaume Costa's Los Che debut comes to an end with Cristian Piccini replacing him.

La Real make their final change with Ander Barrenetxea replacing Zaldua

80' Valencia come so close to a second goal as Guedes plays a ball forward to Rodrigo who gets past the onrushing goalkeeper, but he scuffs his shot and the ball comes back off the post.

Could they come to regret that miss?

75' The second cooling break of the game is now taking place
71' Alexander Isak makes his Sociedad debut after joining from Borussia Dortmund, replacing Januzaj
69' Consecutive crosses from Guedes and Carlos Soler go right through the box with the Portuguese winger eventually getting a shot on goal which is pushed behind by Moya
63' There has been a lengthy delay here for a VAR check but there is no offside and the goal stands
GOAL! 58' VALENCIA 1-0 Real Sociedad

The ball falls to Daniel Wass in the box and he squares for Kevin Gameiro to fire Valencia into the lead

46' We're back underway at the Estadio Mestalla. Can either side find a way to goal in this second half?

KICK-OFF

 

1' We're underway in Valencia

Last season's two meetings produced just one goal, with Valencia coming out on top in San Sebastian.

In the game at the Mestalla, it ended goalless.

Hopefully this evening's match will provide more entertainment!

Kick off is in just over 20 minutes so stay tuned

There is a Real Sociedad debut for Martin Odegaard who starts behind Willian José in an attacking midfield three with Mikel Oyarzabal and Adnan Januzaj. 

Miguel Moya is preferred to new signing Alex Remiro in goal

Rodrigo Moreno starts up front for Valencia despite rumours of a possible move to Atlético Madrid. In midfield, Los Che go with a centre midfield pairing of Geoffrey Kondogbia and Francis Coquelin while Jasper Cillessen makes his debut in goals.

Real Sociedad will be without Cristian Portu and Modibo Sagnan who are injured. They will also be without Diego Javier Llorente and Aritz Elustondo who are serving bans that have carried over from last season.
Javi Jimenez Garcia will definitely miss out for Los Che. Other potential absences include Lee Kang-in and Alvaro Medran. Outside those three, everyone is available for Marcelino.
Real Sociedad have drifted into mid table in the last few seasons which they will feel isn’t good enough. With the size of their club and their history they will feel European football is the minimum requirement and that the Champions League is not beyond them. They need to start proving that on the pitch though.
Valencia have finished fourth in the last two seasons which essentially means they won the mini-league outside the big three. Barcelona, Atletico and Real Madrid are operating on a different level financially so it will be difficult for anyone to close that gap. Qualifying for the Champions League consistently gives them a chance though and that will be the aim for Valencia again this season.

 

Neither side will be thankful to the draw that put together this opening set of fixtures. Both will have European aspirations this season and would have preferred to take on a weaker side at home.
Kick-off time
The Valencia vs Real Sociedad match will be played at Mestalla Stadium in Valencia, Spain. The kick-off is scheduled at 18:00 BST.
