Karim Benzema was once again the hero with a 95th-minute equaliser as Real Madrid failed to go clear at the top of La Liga on Sunday when Valencia held Zinedine Zidane’s side to a 1-1 draw at the Mestalla.

Carlos Soler punished the guests from the capital with his breakthrough in the 78th minute after Real failed to exploit a torrent of first-half pressure, but Benzema found a dramatic equaliser in the fifth minute of injury time.
