It's not been much of a secret that Gary Neville has been under pressure at Valencia.
Saturday's 2-1 win over Espanyol eased the pressure on the former Manchester United man after a winless run that culminated in the 7-0 thrashing at the hands of Barcelona.
But things finally started to click into place for Valencia in the first half of their Europa League match against Rapid Wien on Thursday...

Santi Mina (2), Daniel Parejo, Alvaro Negredo and Andre Gomes scored inside the first 35 minutes to put Neville's side, astonishingly, 5-0 in front at half time...
