A drought of 408 minutes without scoring off

Valencia, who lost 1-0 against Betis at Benito Villamarin in the league, this match accumulates 408 minutes without scoring away from Mestalla in what has become one of the worst droughts in team scoring history.

The set marked Valencia last visited Aug. 19 through its striker Jonas Goncalves who scored in the 42nd minute of the match against Real Madrid that ended with a tie in the first game of the season.

Since then, the team led by Mauricio Pellegrino has been unable to re-mark in their matches against Barcelona (1-0), Mallorca (2-0), Levante (1-0) and Betis (1-0).

A streak that adds 408 minutes and it approaches the worst in recent times and it was precisely that Jonas broke with his goal at the Bernabeu and that amounted to 487 minutes.

Then, Valencia stayed in 'white' in recent games last season against Real Madrid (0-0), Espanyol (4-0), Malaga (1-0) and Real Sociedad (1-0) and the latter had succeeded both Soldier in the fifth minute of the defeat against Getafe (3-1) March 24.

For now there is still by far the worst record in club history that stands at 545 minutes, dating from the 77-78 season when he remained five straight scoreless between days 5-13.

At that time the meetings were unmarked chained to Las Palmas (1-0), Sevilla (1-0), Real Madrid (1-0), Sporting (0-0) and Rayo Vallecano (3-0).
