Valencia maintain title push

Valencia moved to within five points of the La Liga summit with a 4-0 rout of Elche yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Andre Gomes pounced after Przemyslaw Tyton could only parry Sofiane Feghouli's driven cross a minute before half-time to put the visitors in front.

Paco Alcacer then responded to the disappointment of being left out of Vicente del Bosque's Spain squad earlier with a poacher's finish from Gomes' cross for his seventh goal of the season. An Enzo Roco own goal and Nicolas Otamendi's stoppage-time header rounded off the win.
