UEFA dismisses Valencia complaint over shoot-out
Los Che responded to the ruling from European football's governing body by saying: "The club regrets the decision taken."
The last-16 tie saw the London outfit prevail on penalties, but only after the match officials had wrongly adjudged that Valencia's Alberto Gil had hit the woodwork with his spot-kick.
Replays showed that the ball crossed the line before rebounding back out off stanchion supporting the left-hand post.
The disallowed goal proved crucial as Chelsea went on to win the shoot-out 5-3, with Valencia's first-team head coach, Gary Neville, branding the incident "scandalous".
Valencia responded to the ruling by issuing a statement that said:
"Valencia Club de Fútbol has been informed by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body today about their decision to dismiss the Club’s protest against the penalty shootout in the Chelsea vs. Valencia CF match during the UEFA Youth League Round of 16.
"The club regrets the decision taken by the UEFA."
