Valencia 3-6 Real Madrid: Higuain bags hat-trick in a nine goal thriller at the Mestalla

The Mestalla stadium witnessed some breath-taking football on Saturday evening, as Madrid put six goals past a Valencia side who never said die as they kept on fighting until the final whistle.

Karim Benzema had already struck the crossbar before he opened the scoring after 23 minutes when Valencia keeper Guaita gifted the Frenchmen with a near open goal.

Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain scored two goals either side of Kaka’s strike as the away-side condemned Valencia to their eighth loss of the season before completing his hat-trick early in the second half.

The story is too old to be commented.
