Real Madrid are being held 1-1 after the first half of their La Liga opener against Valencia at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid are currently being held 1-1 at half time in their La Liga opener against Valencia at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The hosts made the breakthrough after 10 minutes as Gonzalo Higuain broke the offside trap before firing into the roof of the net at the third time of asking.

Madrid were then happy to retain possession without creating any chances, but Valencia came close on 28 minutes when Sofiane Feghouli's shot was blocked with a last-ditch tackle from Fabio Coentrao.

Jose Mourinho's men had the opportunity to double their lead before the break, but Coentrao greedily went for goal instead of squaring to the unmarked Mesut Ozil.

They were made to pay on 43 minutes as Jonas beat Iker Casillas to the ball to head in Tino Costa's free kick.
