David Villa scored the only goal of a lively encounter to give Valencia a narrow 1-0 away win over Schalke in their Champions League Group B opener.

The striker chased onto a long ball from Luis Miguel to slot home after 61 minutes - the goal coming largely against the run of play.

Schalke made two changes to the line-up that drew against Bayern Munich at the weekend with Marcio Rafinha returning from injury to replace Marcio Rafael Ferreira de Souza and Halil Altintop coming in for Peter Lovenkrands.
