Swansea now eyeing Valencia scalp as Europa League knockout phase looms

Swansea City are determined to produce a winning result in their next Europa League fixture in order to book their spot in the Round of 32.

The Welsh club were held to another 1-1 draw by Kuban Krasnodar on Thursday night, leaving them a point behind group leaders Valencia, with two matches remaining.

The Swans host the Spaniards on November 28 and could secure their path through to the knockout phase if they can reproduce the for that gave them their stunning 3-0 victory at the Mestalla back in September.

"Whatever happens, if we win the next game we are through, we know that," said manager Michael Laudrup.

"It's always positive if you can decide your own fate and we can do that. In the next round of games, whatever happens, it is down to us."
