Madrid dropped two points against brave Valencia

Real Madrid could not get three points at home, as they were held by an impressive Valencia, for a final 0-0 result. Despite the goal-less end, the game was intense and breathtaking.

Goalkeepers Iker Casillas and Vicente Guaita were the men of the game for their teams. They stopped everything that blasted against their goals. But the posts helped too.

Benzema and Ronaldo were Mourinho's key strikers for this match. But both suffered the tough defenders and a lack of precission.

With this result, Real Madrid is only four points ahead of Barcelona, and there are still six games left to go.
