Denis Cheryshev rallies Valencia teammates after Atalanta thrashing

Denis Cheryshev says Valencia cannot lower arms after their Champions League thrashing at Atalanta.

Goalscorer Cheryshev has issued a rallying cry after Valencia's 4-1 defeat to Atalanta in the first-leg of their round 16 tie.

"When we play at home against them, we're going to come out like lions," Cheryshev said.

"We have to have faith and believe in ourselves.

"We're going to go for it."

Atalanta netted four times in the first leg and it's hard to see Valencia keeping them out in the return leg.

"We mustn't concede so many goals," Cheryshev said.

"We have to work on this.

"It's a good foundation to go forward."
