Valencia dump out Stoke

Published Add your comment

Almost seven months after it began, Stoke's Europa League adventure came to an end in Valencia as Jonas' goal earned the hosts a 1-0 victory at the Mestalla and a 2-0 win on aggregate.

The Potters launched their first European campaign since the 1970s with an away win over Hajduk Split back on August 4 and came through a group containing Besiktas and Dynamo Kiev, winning seven of their 12 games.

It was always an uphill struggle after they lost the home leg last week and, although Kenwyne Jones will look back on two glorious first-half chances, it is Valencia who deservedly go through to a last-16 meeting with PSV Eindhoven.
