Valencia has started the season in phenomenal form and set a new club record by winning a seventh LaLiga match in succession on Saturday.

Marcelino's side overcame Leganes 3-0 at Mestalla thanks to goals from Dani Parejo, Rodrigo Moreno and Santi Mina — the latter winning and converting a penalty within four minutes of replacing Simone Zaza.

Victory put Valencia one point adrift of leader Barcelona and extended its unbeaten start to the league campaign.

Los Che won just one of their first four LaLiga matches, though they secured draws against Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in that span, before surging up the table.
