Vinicius scores twice to preserve a tie between Real Madrid and Valencia

On Saturday, on his first visit back to Mestalla Stadium, the scene of his racial abuse the previous season, Vinícius Júnior scored twice to lead Real Madrid to a 2-2 draw with Valencia in the Spanish league. Hugo Duro and Roman Yaremchuk's goals from the first half were eliminated by goals from Vinícius in the 50th and 76th minutes.

Before their respective games on Sunday, Madrid leads the league by nine points over Barcelona and seven over Girona. The game ended dramatically when Aurélien Tchouaméni collided with Valencia's Mouctar Diakhaby in the closing minutes, the defender appeared to have suffered a leg injury and was taken out on a stretcher. Jude Bellingham, who has 16 goals to lead the league, was back in the Madrid squad after missing three games due to an ankle problem and had almost handed the team a win as well. But Bellingham's potential game-winning play was waved off by the referee, who claimed that time had run out.
