Valencia coach Jose Bordalas admitted some relief after last night's 4-3 win at Levante.
Bordalas said: "I have congratulated them on the victory, and we have not had time to analyse anything. It was a spectacular match, with many goals and with a Levante UD that went out for the victory. We have talked about the importance of not allowing counterattacks, and that alertness was essential. Incomprehensibly, we switched off and they got through, and until then the team had not been giving a good performance.
"We grew into the game, and after Guedes' goal we were determined for the victory. We achieved it deservedly. We gave them too many chances, then the team suffered from being excessively ambitious and it could have cost us dearly, but I want to congratulate the players. It was a difficult game, and we achieved a very important victory."
Levante striker Robert Soldado and Valencia's Uros Racic were sent off in the final minutes and Bordalas added: "I totally disapprove of it. We have to be respectful of all of our opponents. Levante UD have a lot on the line, and it is not the time to make any gesture that could offend anyone.
"It cannot happen again on my team; Valencia CF have to be a noble team that respect everyone."
