Real Madrid 1
  • Ronaldo (14 pen)

Victory over Argentinian side San Lorenzo in the Club World Cup final in Morocco had earned Real Madrid a club record 22nd consecutive victory. In their first fixture of 2015, however, they travelled to face Valencia in La Mestalla – and saw the run come to an end despite taking an early lead. Then Valencia coach Nuno talks the Coaches’ Voice through his brave tactics on the day, when he asked three central defenders to go man for man against the much-vaunted Real front three.
