Socceroo keeper starts but Valencia draw in La Liga

Mat Ryan started his fourth straight match on Sunday (Monday morning AEDT) but the Socceroos goalkeeper could not lift Valencia to victory.

Valencia drew 1-1 at Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga, with Alvaro Negredo notching a 93rd-minute equaliser for the visitors.

Negredo got on the end of Dani Parejo's cross to nod the ball into the net, stretching Valencia's unbeaten run to four matches in all competitions with Ryan in goal, although Gary Neville's men have only won once in that period.

Lucas Perez gave Deportivo La Coruna the lead in the 27th minute, rounding an onrushing Ryan to slide the ball home.

It was the third straight match that Ryan has conceded a goal as he continues to keep Juanme Domenech out of Neville's starting XI.

Negredo made it two goals in as many league matches to save Valencia from defeat, as he continues a similar revival to Ryan in the second half of the season.

Later this week, Valencia head to Las Palmas for their second leg Copa Del Rey quarter-final. They drew their first game 1-1.
