Cristiano Ronaldo extended his stunning tally to 26 league goals in the 14th minute at Mestalla Stadium when he stroked in a penalty kick following Alvaro Negredos handball.

Valencia, however, rallied through a goal by Antonio Barragan in the 52nd and defender Nicolas Otamendi fended off Sergio Ramos to head home the 65th-minute winner..

Barcelona stepped on to the Anoeta pitch knowing a win would make them the provisional leaders, but coach Luis Enrique chose a starting eleven without Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Barcelona went behind when Jordi Alba scored an own goal two minutes in and not even the two stars coming on as second-half substitutes could spark the comeback.

Madrid have a game in hand and lead Barcelona and defending champions Atletico Madrid by one point.

Madrid had not lost or drawn a game in any competition since a 2-1 defeat to Atletico on September 13, setting a Spanish record for consecutive wins.

Carlo Ancelottis team must recover quickly for a second tough outing at Atletico on Wednesday in the Copa del Rey
