Real Madrid plugged away in search of victory against Valencia right until the death and came close to securing the spoils, with Karim Benzema's headed effort in injury time coming back off the upright. With 10 minutes on the clock, the Whites got themselves in front as Marco Asensio picked the ball up and drove towards the edge of the area before unleashing a delightful curling effort which flew past the powerless Neto. The visitors hit back eight minutes later when José Luis Gayá and Toni Lato combined down the left before Carlos Soler turned the latter's cross home to level terms.

It was proving to be a lively encounter and despite the sides going in all square at the break, Real Madrid had the chances to have regained their lead before the interval, with Benzema involved in each of these openings. Firstly, his strike from the edge of the box after a dazzling counter-attack on 36' was palmed behind by Neto. The Frenchman then had a further two even more clear-cut openings. On 44' Gareth Bale sent over a cross which the Madrid hitman contrived to send over the bar. One minute later, Toni Kroos was this time the the provider but Benzema's header flew inches wide of Neto's goal.

REAL MADRID HAVE REGISTERED IN EACH OF THEIR LAST 70 COMPETITIVE OUTINGS.

The second half got off to a completely different start. Real Madrid came out strongly as Valencia sat back and looked to begin their counter-attacks from their own box and sought to progress through dead-ball situations. They had a good chance in the 62nd minute but Geoffrey Kondogbia’s headed effort from a free-kick went high. Real Madrid hit back with two chances. Marcelo crossed in six minutes later and Bale’s effort went wide. A minute later, Luka Modric shot from the edge of the box and Neto saved comfortably.

Asensio shines again
The game was give and take and on 73 minutes Dani Parejo sent in a free-kick but Keylor Navas saved well. The madridista keeper was left helpless just four minutes later after Kondogbia stroked the ball home. The Whites now needed a miracle and on 83 minutes Asensio struck with a free-kick from the edge of the box. It was all Real Madrid from then on and they came close to hitting the winner on 88' when Benzema was on hand in the six-yard box but his towering injury-time header was pushed on to the post by Neto.
