Schalke 3-1 Valencia – Match Highlights

Jefferson Farfan struck twice as Schalke fought back from an early deficit to earn a 3-1 win which ensured their progression through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League at the expense of Valencia.

Valencia, having drawn the first leg 1-1 at home, needed just 17 minutes to cancel out Schalke’s away goal when Ricardo Costa headed them in front at the Arena AufSchalke, but the home side turned things around with two goals either side of half-time.

Farfan drew the hosts level with a brilliant 25-yard free-kick in the 40th minute before Mario Gavranovic netted seven minutes into the second half with an effort that sneaked in after hitting both posts.

Then, after Valencia had missed a number of chances to get back into the game and Gavranovic had hit the woodwork twice more, Schalke sealed the victory and their qualification when Farfan netted their third deep into injury-time.
