FT: Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia
...
90+4' VALENCIA SCREAM FOR A PENALTY AS BOTH ZAZA AND MINA GO DOWN IN THE BOX FROM A COUNTER! The ref seems to have gotten that right.
...
90+2' OFF THE POST! IT IS JUST NOT HIS DAY! Carvajal sends in a great cross from the right wing, and Benzema towers above his marker to power a great header that looks destined to nestle in the net, only for Neto to pull off a stunning save and divert the ball onto the post and out of danger!
...
90' 4 minutes of injury time
...
90' SCREAMS FOR A PENALTY AS MARCELO GOES DOWN IN THE BOX! However, the referee waves play on, perhaps correctly.
...
88' HOW DID HE MISS THAT!!! Carvajal sends a low cross into the box that finds Asensio, whose shot is brilliantly blocked by Nacho Gil, but the ball ricochets off his back perfectly for Benzema. With the goal at his mercy, Benzema sends his shot wide of the goal, much to the Bernabeu's and Zidane's agony.
...
88' Santi Mina comes on to replace Rodrigo
...
87' HOW DID THEY NOT SCORE! Asensio leaves Soler for dead with a stunning run down the left wing, before sending a perfect low cross to the near post, where Benzema and Mayoral get in each other's way to ensure that the chance is missed.
...
86' SO CLOSE! Modric swings in a cross to the far post, where Casemiro acrobatically tries to lob the ball into the opposite corner, only to watch it go wide of the post.
...
84' Borja Mayoral comes on to replace Toni Kroos
...
84' Carlos Soler goes into the book for a shove on Kovacic counter-attacking.

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia
...
83' GOOOOAL MARCO ASENSIOOOO!
...
83' Nacho Gil comes on to replace Toni Lato
...
81' Rodrigo goes into the book for a trip on Kovacic right on the edge of the box. Asensio looks to be taking the free kick....with time being wasted as Lato goes down saying that he cannot continue.
...
80' Great block! Lucas Vazquez plays a low ball to Carvajal making a clever run to the near post, but Vezo slides in to deny him from getting his shot on goal off.
...
77' SILENCE IN THE BERNABEU! Rodrigo spreads the ball wide to Lato, who sends a low cross back, and the Valencia frontman turns, holds the ball up superbly before laying the ball back to Kondogbia on the edge of the box. The midfielder sweeps the ball home with a calm left footed finish into the bottom corner and score his first Valencia goal!

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia!
...
77' GOOOAL GEOFFREY KONDOGBIA!!!
...
75' Nacho Vidal (no, really!) comes on to replace Martin Montoya for Valencia.
...
74' Gareth Bale is replaced by Lucas Vazquez, with the Welshman coming off to a mixed reception. The Bernabeu are a demanding lot, aren't they, Gareth?
...
73' BRILLIANT SAVE! Parejo opts for the far corner with a gorgeous free-kick that looked destined to tip just below the bar, only for Navas' strong hand to tip the ball out for a corner.
...
72' Carvajal concedes a foul on Gaya on the left channel, just a few yards away from the box. This is the same place that Parejo scored from last year.....
...
71' CHANCE! Carlos Soler whips in a great ball from the right wing, and Zaza sends his headed effort at the near post over the bar. The Italian ought to have done much better there.
...
69' SUPERB DEFENDING FROM CASEMIRO! Rodrigo finds the ball in space on the left side of the box, and a ball to Zaza would have been a certain goal, only for Casemiro to get himself in the way and deny him.

Madrid set off on the counter, with Carvajal swinging in a great corner, only for Asensio to be inches away.
...
67' SAVE! Modric hammers a low drive from a central position on the edge of the box, and Neto gets down well to his left to make a superb save and concede a corner. Nothing promising is created from the set-piece.
...
67' Parejo goes into the book for a foolish foul on Kroos.
...
66' OH HOW DID HE MISS! Marcelo swings in a delicious cross from the left wing, and Bale charges through at the far post to tower above Lato and heads the ball down and over the bar. That was bread-and-butter for the Welshman and he'll be disappointed with that.
...
62' OH WHAT A CHANCE! A training ground move from Valencia, as Parejo pings the free kick to Gaya in space on the left, who responds with a measured cross to the far post, where Vezo's stopping header bounces up off the pitch and over the bar
...
61' Casemiro goes off to get some treatment to his face, which he managed to hurt while sliding in on Soler to pick up his booking.
...
60' Casemiro goes into the book as he takes one for the team to prevent Carlos Soler from getting away after he got past Modric.
...
58' Cheers ring out at the Bernabeu as Casemiro and Nacho do brilliantly to keep the ball in on the left wing and the left byline respectively, before Kovacic, Kroos and Navas are eerily calm as they play their way out of the back. The move ends with Gareth Bale not showing as much composure to sky a shot over the bar.
...
55' CLOSE! Kondogbia passes the ball back to Neto, and Gareth Bale almost steals in to intercept the ball. Almost.

Moments later, Modric runs on to cross from Carvajal with the Croat chesting it down brilliantly, only to volley it well over the bar from a narrow angle.
...
53' Nacho goes into the book for a shove in the back of Zaza as they challenge for an aerial ball.
...
52' NAVAS! Valencia break forward on the counter, and Rodrigo appears to have evaded Casemiro, but Navas charges out to clear the ball out. Moments later, Benzema is inches away from connecting to Marcelo's cross from the left.
...
51' A glaring error from Montoya as he gifts the ball to Madrid, with Marcelo taking advantage and finding himself on the left side of the box, but his cross is blocked out by Vezo.
...
50' WOOOOAH! Casemiro bursts forward and is found on the right channel by Kovacic. The Brazilian sends in a powerful low shot that nearly catches out Neto, with the keeper palming the ball out for a corner.
...
49' Superb defending! Kovacic runs through the middle before a loose square pass gifts Valencia the advantage, as Zaza bears down on goal, only for Casemiro to bail out his teammates with a superb diving tackle.

Moments later, Montoya is booked for a foul on Marcelo.
...
47' A pretty calm start to the second half from both sides, who are content to pass it at the back only to concede possession when passing forward.
...
46' AND WE'RE OFF! Real Madrid get us underway in the second half, kicking off from right to left.
...
HT: Mateo Kovacic comes on to replace Isco at half-time for Real Madrid.
...
The teams are back out from the tunnel, with the second half coming up next.
...
The score may be 1-1 but Real Madrid have been all over Valencia - they ought to be leading. What may console them is that they are now the only club from Europe's Top 5 Leagues to have ever scored in 70 consecutive games.
...
HT: Real Madrid 1-1 Valencia
...
45' IT IS JUST NOT BENZEMA'S DAY! Toni Kroos swings in a stunning cross from the right wing, and finds Benzema's head in the middle of the box, but in a criminal miss, the Frenchman glances wide!
...
43' HOW DID HE NOT SCORE! Superb combination play from Marcelo and Bale results in the Welshman finding space on the left wing. Bale puts in a delicious low cross right on Benzema's foot, but Vezo's presence disturbs him and he volleys over from two yards out!
...
42' Great work from Casemiro, as he single-handedly gets Madrid out of a tough spot with a header, some great strength to shove off Rodrigo and then win a throw-in.
...
41' OH HOW DID HE NOT SCORE! Modric chips a gorgeous diagonal to Isco running through on the left channel, and he beats his marker, only to dally in the box and a heavy touch allows Valencia to clear with Isco left to rue a golden chance.
...
39' BENZEMA AGAIN! Carvajal sends in a powerful swinging cross and Benzema's unable to glance the ball due to the presence of Murillo to deny him.
...
37' SO SO CLOSE FROM BENZEMA! Madrid break on the counter from Valencia's corner, and Benzema strikes a low effort with Neto making a great save. Madrid finally make a corner count, but Benzema's header bounces off the post, with the Frenchman screaming in agony. He's a goal away from equalling Gento's goal tally for the club....
...
36' Hearts in mouths of Madrid fans as Nacho is down clutching his face with an injury as Valencia take the corner short. The ref stops play, but it was much ado about nothing. Valencia reset and go again..
