Valencia CF won their first three points in this season's UEFA Champions League despite conceding numerous chances to LOSC Lille thanks to an inspired brace of goals from Jonas.

A well-worked first-half opener from the Brazilian forward and a slightly more speculative second with 15 minutes remaining, left LOSC bottom of the group and Valencia nicely placed behind leaders FC Bate Borisov, their matchday three opponents.

Reaction

Today, we believed in what we were doing as a team. What most occupies my mind now is that the side continues like this.

When you lose at home in the UEFA Champions League you have to win away. Big teams are known to be able to bounce back. Let us see if we have the quality to do it.
