In case you were in North Pole Real Madrid lost 2-1 against a Valencia side that put on a big, intense challenge in Mestalla. Ancelotti's men performed very poorly and the players left the stadium in some visible bad mood.

But David Moyes happened. David Moyes. This Scottish manager was able to beat FC Barcelona thanks to an own-goal by Jordi Alba. Of course, Granero, Rulli and Iñigo Martínez played their best game ever, but this is all on David Moyes. Los Blancos need to thank this man, because the loss in Mestalla never happened.
