94'
That's all from us. Thanks for joining us and see you again soon!
94'
FT: RM 3-0 (9) (1 red, 1 injury) Valencia!!!! Full time at the Di Stefano! It was an even first half, but RM picked up in the second. Benzema penalised a Gameiro error to make it 1-0, Asensio scored seconds after his return from injury and then Benzema netted a stunner to make it 3-0. Kang-in Lee of Valencia saw red for kicking Ramos and Coquelin got injured with all the subs used.
92'
Kroos heads wide now!
92'
The five change rule is actually seeing managers make changes more freely and teams are getting injuries with five subs up.
91'
Coquelin has gone down injured, he can't continue and they are out of changes. Valencia down to 9.
90'
Four added minutes.
90'
It's his second red of the season and both were in Madrid as the other was at the Wanda.
89'
Red to Kang-in Lee!!!! The Valencia man kicks Ramos from behind three times when he can't get the ball. A really silly thing to do.
87'
Valencia have clearly been second best in the second period. Once RM scored the first goal, it was one sided.
86'
Benzema makes it 3-0!!! Guedes is dispossessed by Casemiro, RM counter and Kroos sends a cross-field pass to Asensio. Asensio then passes to Benzema in the middle and he takes a touch with his right foot before volleying in with his left!! In off the bar. Terrific goal!
85'
Kroos goes for the goal and it's tipped over for a corner by the GK!
84'
Guillamon is cautioned for a clear handball. Free-kick just outside the box.
83'
Ramos is caught offside.
83'
Vinicius is played in, but he tries to be too unselfish and his cross for Asensio is knocked out for a corner by Gaya.
82'
RM sub: Vinicius on for Hazard.
81'
RM are just keeping the ball now. Comfortable.
79'
Valencia win a corner, but nothing comes of it.
78'
Back in play!
76'
Valencia sub: Kang-In Lee is on for Rodrigo.
75'
Time for drinks!
74'
Asensio scores for RM seconds after coming on!!!! The corner is only half-cleared. Mendy runs onto the ball and dribbles past Wass before crossing for Asensio to volley home!
74'
RM sub: Valverde is replaced by Asensio. He hasn't played since July due to injury.
71'
Valencia starting to thrown people forward now. Coquelin passes to Wass and his ball in finds an RM man.
69'
Valencia double sub: Soler and Parejo off, Coquelin and Cheryshev on.
67'
RM have definitely been the better side in the second half. Very different to the first period.
65'
Modric!!!!! The Croatian tests the keeper form 25 yards and it's a top save.
64'
Hazard shoots wide, but he's offside.
62'
Gameiro had the ball near the touchline in Real's half and he stupidly played a backwards pass towards midfield. He'd only been on the pitch two minutes!
61'
Benzema scores for RM!!! Valencia want offside. Gameiro plays a stupid pass back towards midfield, Hazard picks up the ball, he plays a one-two with Modric and then squares for Benzema who fires past Cillessen. What was Gameiro doing?
59'
Valencia double sub: Gameiro and Guedes on for Maxi Gomez and Torres.
58'
Cillessen again!!! Ramos gives the ball to Valverde 25 yards out and the Valencia goalie makes a fine save.
57'
Gameiro and Guedes are getting ready to come on for Valencia.
54'
Rodrigo's cross from the far side is caught by the keeper.
52'
Zidane's men continue to press and Valencia have to concede the corner.
51'
Real try and go towards goal, but Valencia are keeping them out of the area. Mendy finally sends a cross in and Valencia clear.
50'
RM attack and Benzema's shot is blocked. The hosts are on top.
48'
Free-kick to Valencia as Torres is brought down by Mendy.
46'
RM get us going again here! No changes.
45'
Just to clear up the disallowed goal: Soler's pass went very close to Maxi Gomez and then Rodrigo hit home. Gomez didn't touch the ball, but he was in an offside position and the officials felt his position interfered with play. That's why the ref had to go to the monitor. Had he touched the ball, the VAR would have disallowed the goal himself.
45'
HT: RM 0-0 Valencia! Half-time at the Di Stefano! A draw is a fair score at the moment. Rodrigo had a goal chalked off by VAR and he hit the post earlier in the half. Cillessen has also made two top saves from Hazard and Carvajal at the other end. Back for more in a bit!
45'
The corner is taken short and Hazard's shot from inside the D is stopped easily by the GK.
45'
Kroos' strike deflects off Gaya and lands on the top of the net! Corner.
45'
Defence by Carvajal!! Rodrigo gives to Torres and the strike is blocked by the sliding Carvajal.
45'
Five added minutes. Could have even been more.
45'
Casemiro's header at the back stick is caught by the GK.
45'
RM win a corner.
44'
Parejo makes a terrible error after a silly lateral pass at midfield and Guillamon has to get him out of danger.
43'
Kondogbia goes for goal from very long range and Courtois makes a tremendous save!
42'
Valencia are having a bit of possession in Madrid's half well away from the goal though.
40'
Valencia threaten down Madrid's left and the cross is caught by Courtois.
39'
Carvajal sends a cross into the box, but Benzema's header goes across the box rather than towards goal.
37'
Could have six added minutes with the VAR and the drinks break.
36'
Back in play here!
33'
Nothing comes of it and now it's drinks!
32'
Valverde's cross is turned behind for a corner.
29'
Top save by Cillessen!! Carvajal plays a one-two with Modric before getting past Soler and shooting at goal! Cillessen saves with his right foot!
28'
Maxi Gomez is penalised for a foul.
27'
Valencia win a corner.
25'
Even though Gomez's doesn't touch Soler's pass through to Rodrigo, Gomez is slightly offside and is influencing the play.
24'
Gaya is booked for protesting.
24'
No goal!!! Offside is given!!! Gomez is slightly offside and the ball passes right next to him! He tries to get out of the way, but he's in the middle of the move and influences. Fair call.
23'
The ref is going to the monitor to see it.
20'
Rodrigo scores for Valencia! RM want offside! Gaya's ball is cleared onto Soler, then Gaya gives to Soler, his pass goes through Maxi Gomez and then Rodrigo hits home.
17'
Hazard!!! The Belgian hits one from outside the box and it goes to Cillessen.
14'
Valencia strike the post!!! This is a cracker. Maxi Gomez turns brilliantly and then passes to Rodrigo in space and the Spaniard's shot strikes the far stick! I think Courtois gets fingertips to it.
12'
What a save!!! RM attack through Kroos, he passes to Benzema who feeds Hazard in the box and Cillessen makes a tremendous save from close range!
11'
Valencia counter and Courtois comes out to clear as Rodrigo chases the ball.
11'
Chance for Kroos!!! RM attack, Benzema picks up a cross-field pass, he cuts back for Kroos and the German hits at Cillessen.
8'
A long ball is sent for Benzema in the area, but he can't reach it.
7'
Parejo's free-kick is batted away to Soler and his effort is then cleared by a defender.
5'
Ferran Torres is fouled by Casemiro after a lovely counter by Celades' men.
4'
Good passing by RM sees Casemiro shoot from 30 yards and the ball goes straight to Cillessen.
3'
Benzema's shot is blocked by a defender and it goes for a throw-in.
2'
RM with some early possession in Valencia's half on the far side and Kroos is tugged back by Torres.
1'
Valencia get us going in the blue from right to left! RM in white.
Prev.
Minute's silence here.
Prev.
Ramos and Parejo, the two captains, are holding a shirt showing their support for Juan Carlos Unzue who has confirmed he has ALS. He used to be Luis Enrique's number two at Barca and has coached Celta and Girona in the past.
Prev.
The players make their way out here!
Prev.
Real Madrid beat Eibar 3-1 at the weekend while Valencia took the lead at home to city rivals Levante in the 89th minute before Levante made it 1-1 with a 98th minute VAR penalty.
Prev.
26 degrees in Madrid this evening. A reminder that the game is at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium, the B team ground, as the Bernabeu is undergoing renovation work for the rest of the season. The match is behind closed doors, of course.
Prev.
2nd v 8th. 59pts v 43pts.
Prev.
Jose Maria Sanchez Martinez is the referee for this one while Pablo Gonzalez Fuertes is the VAR.

Wass is also in for Florenzi, Kondogbia in for Coquelin, and Ferran Torres comes in for Guedes.

The big news is that Diakhaby, who has given away three penalties in his last two games, has been replaced by Mangala.
Prev.
Mendy replaces Marcelo and Valverde is in for Rodrygo. They are the two chances for Real Madrid from the 3-1 win over Eibar.
Prev.
Valencia XI: Cillessen (GK); Gaya, Guillamon, Mangala, Wass; Soler, Kondogbia, Parejo, Ferran Torres; Gomez and Rodrigo.
Prev.
