87'
GOAL: RASHFORD: VALENCIA 1 - 2 MANCHESTER UNITED: LATE COMEBACK? Good play from United as they work it around quickly on the left side of the box. Lingard keeps the ball in play and rolls it back for Young. He chips in a cross and Rashford leaps high and powers a header into the bottom corner.

CLOSE: Jones heads just over at the far post, better from United but too little too late.

SECOND HALF: VALENCIA 1 - 0 MANCHESTER UNITED: We're back underway here in Valencia!
45'
HALF TIME: VALENCIA 1 - 0 MANCHESTER UNITED: A drab first half in truth, Valencia have looked good value for their lead and have had the majority of the chances. Despite this, United should be level as Paul Pogba inexplicably missed from four yards out.
45'
TWO MINUTES ADDED TIME
43'
BIG MISS: Valencia catch Manchester United on the counter-attack, Michy Batschuayi tries a shot on his weaker right foot however he scuffs his effort well well wide and high.

As it stands, Manchester Untied will go through in second place.
37'
It was a terrible miss from Paul Pogba.

That was a HUGE miss from Pogba, Lukaku knocked on a head, was onside, and he somehow managed to hit the ball over from four yards out. Should be 1-1.
34'
Ball rolls out of play after a good move from United, Pogba is then flagged offside from the resulting corner.
32'
Corner to Valencia swung, Parejo did well to volley a shot on tarfet with was well saved. More good play from Valencia!
29'
Eric Bailly booked for colliding with the Valencia goalkeeper Domenech as he was catching a cross - there was minimal contact there, seems to be a harsh yellow card but he isn't complaining.
24'
On balance, probably a deserved goal - Manchester United have hardly threatened and Valencia look good for their lead.
16'
GOAL: The hosts are ahead - Carlos Soler drills the ball home after Manchester United fail to clear their lines.
16'
GOAL: SOLER: VALENCIA 1 - 0 MANCHESTER UNITED
11'
Lato is still down, Valencia was maybe lucky to escape with only a yellow there.
10'
YELLOW: That was a terrible challenge from Antonio Valencia, the Manchester United went in heavy on Lato and managed to clear his knees, he looks to be in great pain here and play has stopped.
