Valencia took control of their Copa del Rey fifth-round tie with Osasuna, leaving Pamplona with a 2-0 win.

Mauricio Pellegrino's men already had the template for how to beat Los Rojillos, having got the better of them with a 1-0 Primera Division win at the weekend, and they followed the same pattern.

They had to wait until after the half-time break to move ahead, with Daniel Parejo scoring in the 47th minute, before talisman Roberto Soldado climbed off the bench to add a second which gives Los Che a handy cushion ahead of the return leg.

Parejo's goal was his first of the season at the 14th time of asking - while Soldado is no stranger to the back of the net, with his injury-time strike his 13th of the campaign already, but his first in the Copa.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
