The result at Stoke's Britannia Stadium puts Valencia in a commanding position for the second leg of this round-of-32 tie.

It was a far from unexpected scoreline, however, with Stoke used to plying their trade in the middle reaches of the Barclays Premier League, while Valencia are Champions League regulars.

The game featured a dramatic clash of styles as Stoke's direct, physical approach compared sharply with Valencia's more patient, technical play.
