Late strike from Daniele secured an equalizer for Real Valladolid

A stoppage-time stunning free kick from Daniele Verde equaliser denied Espanyol top spot in LaLiga going into the weekend as Real Valladolid snatched a 1-1 draw.

Borja Iglesias scored 20th-minute, his strike from outside the box found the top right corner of the post. Just before the break Valladolid nearly equalized from Toni Villa’s left-footed shot which was comfortably saved Diego Lopez.

Espanyol were almost certain of two points clear off Barcelona until 90+1 minute when Verde scored with a stunning free-kick after Victor Sanchez brought down by Ruben Alcaraz to earn the draw.

The result leaves Espanyol level on points with Barcelona before the leaders face Real Madrid in El Clasico on Sunday.
