Valencia missed the chance to capitalise on Real Madrid's slip-up as they suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Getafe, reports Sky Sports.

Former Newcastle and Chelsea striker Loic Remy got both goals for the Azulones to give them a victory that saw them climb to eighth in the table, six points adrift of a Europa League place, while Real were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Athletic Bilbao.

Getafe went ahead after 16 minutes when Damian Suarez played in Remy and he made no mistake in firing low into the net.

He doubled the advantage four minutes after the restart as Jorge Molina picked him out and he shot home from the edge of the box.

Rodrigo got one back for Valencia 21 minutes from time but any hopes of a comeback suffered a blow with the 86th-minute dismissal of Daniel Parejo for an elbow on Molina.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo scored an exquisite back-heel to rescue a point for Real Madrid in their 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday, reports cricinfo.

Madrid looked to be heading for defeat after Inaki Williams opened the scoring for the visitors after 14 minutes.

But Ronaldo, restored to the starting lineup by head coach Zinedine Zidane, provided a deft flick from Luka Modric's 87th-minute drive to move Real to within three points of second-place Atletico Madrid having played one game more.

David Lomban scored the only goal as Eibar won 1-0 at Espanyol.

The out-of-form side jumped up to 11th with victory, which takes them back within a point of the top half, and seven ahead of Chico Sanchez Flores' side.

Lomban got the winner in the 32nd minute when he headed home Sanchez Pedro Leon's corner.
