VALENCIA, Spain (AP) Valencia scored four goals in the last 25 minutes to come from behind and beat Lille 4-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The home win left Valencia with seven points in the tight Group H, tied with Chelsea and Ajax after four matches.

Chelsea and Ajax drew 4-4 in London.

Victor Osimhen put Lille ahead after a breakaway in the 25th minute, sending a low shot through the legs of Valencia goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen in a one-on-one situation.

Valencia equalized with a 66th-minute penalty converted by Dani Parejo - Panenka style - after a handball by Lille defender Jose Fonte.

The hosts went ahead with an own goal by defender Adama Soumaoro when he tried to intercept a cross in the 82nd, and Geoffrey Kondogbia added to the lead two minutes later with a long-range shot into the top corner.

Substitute Ferran Torres closed the scoring from inside the area the 90th.
