VICTOR VALDES AMAZING DOUBLE SAVE AGAINST VALENCIA VIDEO

Tuesday, February 05, 2013


Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes was outstanding for their 1-1 draw at Valencia yesterday.
The visitors had the opportunity to establish an 18-point gap over arch-rivals Real Madrid following the capital club’s shock loss at Granada last night, but turned in a performance well below their usual high standards as Valencia were unfortunate not to take the win.
Ever Banega opened the scoring with the first shot of the match after 33 minutes, but Valencia’s lead lasted just five minutes as Lionel Messi fired home from the penalty spot after Pedro had gone to ground in the area under the challenge of Joao Pereira.
Valencia came closest to winning the match in the second half but Valdes produced two saves out of the top drawer to first deny Sergio Canales and then the dangerous Roberto Soldado.
The draw saw Barca establish a 12-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid ahead of their late kick-off against Real Betis.

Did you know that Valdes hated playing as a goalkeeper when he was younger? Check out the next video.
