Valencia end Maccabi Haifa hopes

Maccabi Haifa FC 0-4 Valencia CF (agg: 0-4) Valencia ease into the draw for the third round.

Valencia CF eased into Friday's third-round draw for the UEFA Cup with a 4-0 victory against Israel's Maccabi Haifa FC at a neutral venue in the Netherlands.

Valencia goals
First-half goals by Miguel Mista and Rubén Baraja and two in added time by David Albelda and Miguel Angulo completed the 4-0 aggregate win following the surprise 0-0 first-leg draw at the Mestalla stadium last month.

Venue switch
The second leg had originally been switched to Izmir, Turkey, because of the unstable security situation in Israel but the game was moved again, to the Sparta stadium in Rotterdam, following the bomb attacks in Istanbul last month.

No chance
Maccabi Haifa had performed well to hold the Spanish side in the first leg but fell behind after eleven minutes on Thursday when Pablo Aimar set up Mista, who gave goalkeeper Nir Davidovitch no chance.

Margin doubled
Thirteen minutes later Baraja doubled Valencia's lead as he eased a Vicente Rodríguez cross into the net from close range. Maccabi Haifa pressed in the second half but rarely threatened and were caught out at the end when Albelda and Angulo doubled the margin.
