Tight Win For Real Madrid Over 10-man Valencia
Madrid - Real Madrid came back to life on Saturday with a tight, tense 1-0 home win over Valencia.
Real won thanks to an early goal from Gonzalo Higuain and a stellar display from goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
Valencia left the Estadio Bernabeu complaining about the sending- off of captain Carlos Marchena, and bemoaning their lack of precision in attack.
Real only had 43 per cent possession, due to the counter-attacking style imposed by new coach Juande Ramos.
The win takes Real from sixth to fourth, with 29 points from 16 games.
