Marco Asensio struck twice to rescue a point for a wasteful Real Madrid side against the resilient Valencia at Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.

The young Spaniard, who is rising in stature with each passing game, opened the scoring just ten minutes into the match with a wonderful strike from 20 yards, before Carlos Soler levelled things up for Los Che with a close-range finish.

Summer arrival Geoffrey Kondogbia then put the visitors ahead with less than 15 minutes left in the match. But, Asensio was still to have a say in the match, and he earned his side a hard-earned point with a superb free-kick.

The result, though, meant that Real Madrid have fallen behind bitter rivals at this early juncture in the season. Here are the best tweets that emerged in the aftermath of the match as fans and pundits alike reacted to the surprising result.
