Spain: Real Madrid crashed hard at Valencia
Real Madrid has taken the second defeat in La Liga at mid-engine Valencia. The Spanish champion, who has so far made a changeable impression this season, went down hard in Mestalla: 4-1.
Carlos Soler was the big man at the home team. He scored three times from a penalty kick. The other goal was scored by Raphaël Varane (own goal). For Real Madrid, Karim Benzema had still opened the score in the hectic game.
Everything went wrong with Soler’s first penalty kick. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois turned the bet, after which the Valencia midfielder hit the post in the rebound. Teammate Yunus Musah then did score, but the video referee denied his goal because of running in too early. Then Soler was allowed to take over the penalty kick and this time he did score.
Real Madrid is now fourth with sixteen points. Real Sociedad, which won 2-0 against Granada, leads with twenty points. Barcelona takes eighth place with 11 points after the home win against Real Betis (5-2).
