Good night

That's if it all goes ahead next weekend of course - expect this week to be full of twists and turns as the

dispute over television rights in Spanish football goes on.

Until then, we will be seeing you.

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Real had 29 shots on goal. 29!

For my money Valencia more than deserved their point though - they should be safe to take fourth and a place in next year's Champions League, with Sevilla now four points behind.

Barcelona can wrap the title up in Madrid next weekend - away to Atletico, in a mirror image of last year, when Atletico were crowned champions at the Nou Camp.

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

A brilliant match for the neutral too Ben.

How many times did Real hit the woodwork? Seven or so? And when they weren't busy conspiring to hit the post or bar Diego Alves was finding ways to save his Valencia team with some brilliant saves - not least from Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty.

Factor in the injury to Toni Kroos and it has been a very rough night for Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Ben Ramage: Valencia I could kiss you! Best game of the season so far, could have been 5-5. La Liga is Barca's!

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Real are still to play Espanyol and Getafe, while Barca have got the tougher run-in - Atletico Madrid and Deportivo.

But one win from those two games will see Luis Enrique's side crowned champions. That really should be that and the Real players seem to know it as they salute the home crowd.

No league title for them since 2012...

FULL-TIME

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

And that is that.

Barca go four points clear, with two games left.

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Ay ay ay!

Pepe gets his head to it, Diego Alves spoons up onto the bar, the crowd is willing the ball in but it's all in vain - the referee had blown up for a foul anyway.

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Cristiano Ronaldo

The last minute. Real force two corners, Marcelo works space and shoots but it's blocked.

Asier Illaramendi then buys a free-kick in dangerous territory. Last chance saloon...

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Valencia break but again Alvaro Negredo doesn't have the quality required at the vital moment.

Time is running out for Real. Barcelona can go out and get their Cava if it stays like this...

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Sofiane Feghoulioi jinks past Marcelo with a stepover, nutmegs Isco... it's pretty but Real win it back, James Rodriguez lines up a shot on the edge of the box but its well blocked...

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Real look to break down the right but Dani Parejo says no - and goes in the book for a cynical foul.

INJURY TIME

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

From a Real corner Pepe nods a header at the far post - it's wide and he is angry.

There are FIVE minutes to play, stoppage time. Here we go...

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

... foul in the box though. Real have the free-kick and Valencia waste a bit more time with their final change.

Pablo Piatti is off, Lucas Orban on.

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Valencia haven't give up hope of the three points yet though - a win would see them sitting comfortably in fourth place. They force a corner...

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

... but it's deflected wide for a corner. James Rodriguez plays it too deep but Real are building from the back, roared on by the home support.

One more goal! Three minutes plus stoppage time to find it.

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

Free-kick Real.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale discuss, and Ronaldo plants the ball down in dangerous range....

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia

There was only one way to get past Diego Alves tonight and Isco knew it.

That's set us up nicely for a five-minute grandstand finish. One goal and Real are right back in the title race.

GOAL

Real Madrid 2-2 Valencia - Isco

Isco
AFP

That is more like it! Isco finds the net with a curled effort from outside the box. Real could have done with that about 20 minutes ago though - surely there's no time?

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Alvaro Negredo again - where is his finishing today? The Manchester City striker, on loan at Valencia, heads wide as Real are let off the hook for an umpteeth time.

Down the other end Javier Hernandez ain't gonna beat Diego Alves with that - a tame effort straight at the keeper, who has been brilliant tonight.

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

They may be taking their time with it but all of this is deserved - Valencia are piling on the pressure and force another corner, Jose Luis Gaya again firing wildly on goal as the move breaks down.

It's back with Real but they've lost all of their zip. Sergio Ramos gives the ball away in midfield and Alvaro Negredo lunges at the ball on the edge of the box. It's well over but could have been so much worse.

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Sofiane Feghouli expertly displaying the sadly not lost art of delaying a throw in. 'Yeah I'll take it... Ah actually no you can have it', he mimes, pointing to the player furthest away on the pitch.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Another change for Valencia. Rodrigo De Paul on to replace Andre Gomes.

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Alando Clemz: Seems Marca won't have any headlines tomorrow since Bale's doing well. Always negative about Bale.

David Rawlings: Pepe reminds me of a more expensive modern Ramon Vega, an absolute liability but somehow a regular goalscorer! Game on.

Wale Ibraheem: Madrid's season and the future of Carlo Ancelotti might be determined by the result of this match and the next one on Wednesday.

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Alves is well enough to restart play with a free-kick but that little interlude has eaten into Real's remaining get-out time.

Just 15 minutes to go now. Two goals or else it's advantage Barcelona.

CLOSE!

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Sergio Ramos

Sergio Ramos with the header as James Rodriguez lifts it in but again Diego Alves is equal to it!

He's having a splendid night, and at the moment is telling the referee all about it with the physio coming on to give him some magic spray.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Shkodran Mustafi - the former Everton defender let go by David Moyes - again rises highest at a Valencia corner and again misses the target. Over the past 10 minutes Valencia have looked strongest.

But Javi Fuego goes in the book and it's free-kick Real...

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Gareth Bale

Real are out of changes of course - they have to do this with what they've got out there, and with Juventus to come on Wednesday in the Champions League semi-finals.

Valencia are showing no sighs of fatigue, sweeping the ball deep into Real territory from a goal-kick.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Alvaro Negredo is on, Paco Alcacer off for Valencia as Cristiano Ronaldo fires a free-kick wide. Much ado about a foot-wide shot.

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Cristiano Ronaldo

James Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale. We touched on Javier Hernandez not really fitting in earlier but surely there's two more goals out of those four?

The clock is ticking...

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Valencia's thoughts now are with keeping the ball high up the pitch. There's good interplay form Paco Alcacer and Sofiane Feghouli up top but again Jose Luis Gaya hasn't read the script - he gives the ball away with a wayward shot.

Real have men over if Cristiano Ronaldo can find them but no, it breaks down.

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Jose Luis Gaya is forgetting all about his battle with Gareth Bale now - the Valencia left-back scampers forward to fire a dangerous-looking low cross that beats everybody in the box.

How much more are Real prepared to risk? The title is slipping away from them here.

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Just when Real seem to be building Valencia pop up with a reminder of how they ended up storming into a 2-0 lead as an Iker Casillas goal-kick is chased down.

But this game is opening up massively as Real then momentarily have four on four at the back. The move breaks down though, before Gareth Bale wastes another good chance with a poor delivery.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia

Sergio Ramos and Nicolas Otamendi are booked. They deserve each other.

Ramos, and Pepe on a yellow? That can only spell trouble...

GOAL

Real Madrid 1-2 Valencia - Pepe

Pepe
AFP

Real with one back! Moments after Gareth Bale misses a great chance at the far post Pepe rises from a corner and powers home with a header that puts Carlo Ancelotti's side right back in it.

Just two more...

Real Madrid 0-2 Valencia

Lovely one-touch passing football as Valencia play a free-kick conceded by Sergio Ramos (that other serial fouler) earns a corner but Real clear.

The home side are willing them forward on the counter but Sofiane Feghouli breaks it up.

Real Madrid 0-2 Valencia

Cristiano Ronaldo
Reuters

Cristiano Ronaldo with a free-kick that for once nearly justifies the stage directions that accompany his run-up - Diego Alves racing out off his line to punch a dangerous-looking cross clear.

As Real turn the screw Valencia then scramble it out for a corner, Gareth Bale has a header punched over by Alves but the referee's pulled it back - Pepe has been throwing his weight around in the box.

CLOSE!

Real Madrid 0-2 Valencia

Dani Parejo's delivery has been superb tonight. The former Real man laid it on a plate for Javi Fuego to put Valencia two up and it should be three as Shkodran Mustafi rises beautifully to head wide from a corner. A big miss.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 0-2 Valencia

The last thing Real need is Pepe on a yellow card. That story's only gonna end up one way...

But the Portuguese is booked for a heavy challenge in the air as Valencia look to break. Well done ref.

CLOSE!

Real Madrid 0-2 Valencia

Javier Hernandez

First sight of goal goes to Javier Hernandez - he fires one in from a tight angle, blocked back out by Diego Alves.

KICK-OFF

Real Madrid 0-2 Valencia

Carlo Ancelotti
AFP

We are back under way. Will changing the two wing-backs bring Real back into this? Let's hope there are no more injuries - Carlo Ancelotti's used up his quota.
