Raul rescued a 1-1 draw against Valencia

German Schalke 04 visited Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium for the Champions League. Roberto Soldado scored the opener for the Spanish team in the first half. But Raul Gonzalez proved that he is still a world-class striker by netting the equalizer.

Valencia coach Unai Emery expressed that "unfortunately for us, Raul had a superb performance." In fact, with this goal Raul is the top scorer of European competitions in history, with 70 goals.

Felix Magath said the result was well-deserved for Schalke, a team that recovered from the initial dominance of Valencia, and managed to get a good result at the end of the game.
