General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +1 Dani Parejo very nearly latches on to a loose ball inside the penalty area but Xabi Alonso is there to slide the ball out. Corner to Valencia.
89' Valencia have defended bravely to their credit. Ricardo Costa and Victor Ruiz in particular have been stalwarts at the back this evening. I hope this doesn't jinx them!
87' P. Piatti gets yellow.
The game is getting very stretched in the dying minutes. You have to feel that this will favour Real Madrid. There may be another goal in this.
85' Last five or so minutes of the match now. Will Madrid start the season with a hiccup or do they have a hero in their midst?
84' João Pereira gets yellow.
83' Last change of the match now as on-loan Rubin Kazan striker Nelson Valdez comes on for Sofiane Feghouli, as Valencia add fresh legs.
82' N. Valdéz enters the game and replaces S. Feghouli.
81' Great save from Diego Alves! Ronaldo bursts a gut down the left and picks out Callejon at the back post who has a crack at goal with a left-footed strike, but Alves makes a solid save and palms the ball away.
79' Lovely piece of link-up play between Ronaldo and Benzema as they exchange two one-two's before Ronaldo clips a cross into the area that is cleared. Good defending again from Valencia as they squeezed the space available to the Portuguese.
77' Callejon picks up the ball on the edge of the box and whips a cross into the area for Ronaldo but Ruiz is there again to clear the danger. Great defending again.
