Real Madrid were held to a 2-2 draw by Valencia on Sunday in a highly entertaining encounter.

Asensio scored Madrid’s first before Valencia scored through Carlos Soler to end the first half 1-1. Geoffrey Kondogbia made it two for Valencia in the second half before Asensio scored a free kick to equalise for the host with striker Karim Benzema missing several chances.
Real Madrid now have four points from two matches.
