Valencia 1 Real Madrid 4

After the disappointment of exiting the Copa del Rey, at the hands of Leganes in midweek, Real Madrid got back to winning ways against Valencia, at the Mestalla this afternoon.

Two first-half penalties gave Real Madrid the perfect platform to take the three points.

The first, in the 16th minute, saw Ronaldo dust himself down to get up after being fouled in the box, to give Real Madrid a 1-0 lead.

The second, in the 38th minute, saw Benzema pushed in the box and Ronaldo duly converted his second spot-kick of the afternoon.

However, the second half saw our hosts get back into the game when Santi Mina pulled a goal back, giving Real Madrid a tricky half hour or so to negotiate.

But with Valencia pushing for an equaliser, Real Madrid struck late-on to ensure the three points came their way.

In the 84th minute, Marcelo gave Real Madrid that much-needed breathing space and in the 89th minute Toni Kroos produced a wonderful strike from long-range to wrap matters up.
