Sergio Canales struck four minutes from time as Valencia CF broke FC St Gallen's hearts in Switzerland to book themselves a berth in the knockout phase.

The home side, down to ten men since the 56th minute, looked set for a memorable point when Canalas swooped to make it 3-2, ending their valiant effort. It was the second occasion the Spanish side had taken the lead and this time there was no denying them as they sealed a win that lifted them to the Group A summit and through to the UEFA Europa League round of 32.
