A brace from the penalty spot from Cristiano Ronaldo has handed Real Madrid a 2-0 lead at the break, although the scoreline is not a fair reflection of the match as Valencia have been active in the final third.
The visitors broke quickly from a Valencia corner and swept down the other end of the field before Ronaldo was fouled in the box following a nice passing move with Marcelo and Karim Benzema.
Parejo lifts the ball into the box, but Bale rises above Coquelin to clear the danger and it hands Madrid an opportunity to break.
Ronaldo was fouled for the first spot kick after he was put through on goal following a good counter attacking move with Marcelo and Karim Benzema.
