A flurry of first-half goals set Valencia FC on the way to a convincing 5-1 defeat of FC St Gallen that lifts them into second place in UEFA Europa League Group A.

Overwhelmed 3-0 by Swansea City AFC at Mestalla on matchday one, Miroslav Djukić's team never looked in danger of suffering a similar fate. Paco Alcácer and captain Ricardo Costa scored either side of Fede Cartabia's double to give Valencia a commanding lead. Sergio Canales then added a fifth with 19 minutes remaining before Stéphane Nater conjured a late consolation.
