Real Vallodolid 2-3 Real Madrid, José Zorrilla, Full Time

Mesut Özil shone brightest for Real Madrid in what turned out to be a particularly entertaining clash at the Estadio Nuevo José Zorrilla.

The German playmaker managed to chip in with a deserved double including a cracker of a free-kick winner. 

In the end, Manucho's two goals were for nothing but Miroslav Dukic will have some positives to take from his side's close loss to Real Madrid, who move to within eight points of league leaders, Barcelona.
