Real Madrid defeated Valencia 2: 1 in the last spirit of the La Liga derby, continuing the unbeaten run in the new season in the league.
Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema scored within two minutes at the end of the second half to overturn the lead that Hugo Duro had given to Valencia in advance at Mestalla on Sunday.
Madrid is now first in the LA League table with 13 points, two more than Atletico Madrid and three more than Valencia in third place.
This was the fourth victory for Carlo Ancelotti’s team after the first five rounds in the league.
Valencia was expected to cause great trouble to Madrid by seeing its form and did so for most of the match.
After a more even first half, the level of play of the locals dropped significantly and Real was irresistible in attack.
Valencia took the lead in the 66th minute when Duro scored from close range alone later, but from that moment on, Ancelotti made four substitutions, which gave result.
Vinicius scored for 1: 1 in the 86th minute, after his shot was deflected into the gate by the Valencia defender.
Just two minutes later, Benzema headed in Real’s lead and triumph, taking advantage of the goalkeeper’s wrong exit.
