La Liga, Mestalla – Valencia 2 (Zaza 4′, Orellana 9′) – Real Madrid 1 (Ronaldo 44′)
Real Madrid suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat away at Valencia on Wednesday evening as they failed to extend their lead at the top of La Liga.
Real remain one point ahead of Barcelona with one more game in hand but they will rue this missed opportunity.
Valencia raced into a two goal lead within ten minutes through Simone Zaza and Fabian Orellana.
Madrid pulled one back thanks to a powerful header from Cristiano Ronaldo but were unable to find an equaliser.
