Swansea City AFC enjoyed a spectacular UEFA Europa League debut by sweeping aside ten-man Valencia CF 3-0 at Mestalla.

Visiting coach Michael Laudrup could scarcely have wished for a better start after labelling Valencia as "favourites for the group" prior to kick-off. Wilfried Bony opened the scoring after Adil Rami had been sent off on ten minutes, and Michu consolidated Swansea's lead in the second period. Midfielder Jonathan De Guzmán then completed the rout by adding a spectacular third.
