Asensio rescues point for Real with brilliant brace

Spanish champions Real Madrid had to rely on two stunning strikes from Marco Asensio to rescue a 2-2 draw at home to Valencia yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Asensio, 21, gave Real the lead with a long-range strike, but Valencia scored two impressive goals either side of the break through youngster Carlos Soler and debutant Geoffrey Kondogbia.

Asensio then salvaged a point for Real with a superb free-kick in the 83rd minute. - REUTERS
