VALENCIA - Inter are out of the Champions League after a goalless draw at the Estadio Mestalla.

Valencia's two away goals from the first leg in Milan proved enough to see the Spanish side through to the quarter-final stage.

Marco Materazzi headed over a Stankovic inswinger early on, with Julio Cesar parrying Baraja's diagonal drive before Morientes fired over from an inviting position just outside the area.

Angulo then had a shot on the turn blocked by Burdisso as Valencia pushed for an opener with Baraja rifling over from 25 yards.

The end-to-end first half continued with Argentina captain Ayala getting back well to dispossess Crespo who had just Canizares to beat after meeting a Stankovic through pass.

The Nerazzurri had a penalty claim turned down ten minutes before the break when Albiol appeared to handle the ball when blocking Crespo's shot from Stankovic's short pass in the six-yard box.

Inter survived a couple of scares just after the restart when Villa's near-range header deflected off Dacourt before Julio Cesar produced a point-blank save from Moretti's bullet header.

Stankovic fired into the side-netting from a Maicon cross, with Crespo volleying over from the Brazilian's looping pass as Mancini's men carved out a string of second-half chances.

Materazzi went closest on 75 minutes, rising at the back post to head on target a Figo outswinger that was miraculously saved on the line by Marchena before Canizares smothered. Julio Cruz had an effort blocked by Albiol minutes later after timing his run perfectly to meet a Materazzi pass.

Valencia hit back on the counter-attack, going close through Joaquin who fired wide from 20 yards, and Vicente, who tested Julio Cesar late on with a fierce low strike, forcing Materazzi into a sweeping clearance after the Inter keeper's block.

Fabio Grosso was twice denied in the Spanish box before Valencia lauched an all-out assault on the Inter goal in a tense finale, with Burdisso making two vital clearances from Villa before Marchena fired narrowly wide from 20 yards.

The match was marred by an ugly incident after the final whistle. Burdisso was punched in the face by Valencia substitute Navarro, sparking a brawl between players from both sides.
