Paco Alcacer comes back to haunt Valencia

Villarreal won the highly anticipated Derbi de la Comunitat, beating Valencia 2-0 at Estadio de la Ceramica.

Deadly for Valencia was their boy and one of the all-time best products of the club’s academy – Paco Alcacer, who showed no mercy against his boyhood club and netted an attractive volley to put the host in front.

He practically ended Los Che’s hopes for a place in the Champions League next season and kept Villarreal alive and kicking in the race for a top-four finish, as they closed the gap behind Sevilla to only three points.
