 Real Madrid's club record 22-match winning run was ended by Nicolas Otamendi's fine header as Valencia came from behind to secure a famous victory.

Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty put Real in front, his 33rd goal of the season.

But Valencia made it 1-1 seven minutes into the second half through Antonio Barragan's deflected shot.

Otamendi then powered the ball in from a corner but Madrid stayed top of La Liga thanks to Barcelona's 1-0 defeat to David Moyes's Real Sociedad.

It was Real's first defeat since they lost to city rivals and La Liga champions Atletico Madrid on 13 September.

.....
 David Moyes's Real Sociedad stopped Barcelona going top of La Liga thanks to an early own goal from Jordi Alba.

Real Madrid's 2-1 defeat at Valencia earlier in the day would have allowed the Catalans to edge ahead in the title race if they had won.

But coach Luis Enrique started with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Dani Alves on the bench following the festive break.

And they were unable to inspire a fightback as Moyes secured a memorable second win as Sociedad manager.
