Struggling Valencia handed Real Madrid their second league defeat of the season as Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal was insufficient to prevent Real’s surprise loss at the Mestalla.

Former West Ham striker Simone Zaza opened the scoring for the hosts with a spectacular strike and Fabian Orellana doubled the lead before Cristiano Ronaldo pulled a goal back.

Ronaldo could have snatched a point late on, but failed to hit the target with his looping header.

Zinedine Zidane’s side remain one point clear of Barcelona with a game in hand.
