Former Liverpool talent Antonio Barragan ends Real Madrid's sensational winning streak with rare goal

Mestalla Valencia

The right-back scored the winner in a 2-1 win for Valencia against Real Madrid.

Real Madrid faced Valencia today hoping to continue their truly sensational recent form.

Los Merengues had won their previous 22 competitive games, a club record, and Carlo Ancelotti had his eye on the world record.

But that dream is now dead after Valencia won the game 2-0 at the Mestalla thanks to goals from Nicolas Otamendi and, a former Liverpool youngster.

Antonio Barragan signed for Liverpool as a teenager in 2005. He went on to play one game for the club before joining Deportivo La Coruna the following summer.

He then went on to play for Valladolid before joining Valencia in 2011, and today he scored his first ever La Liga goal for Los Che to end Real's record run.

The former Liverpool star, now 27-years-old, will probably never score a more important goal for the club, in fact, he may never score another. Because German side Bayer Leverkusen are said to be on the cusp of agreeing a move for the right-back - who has just ended a part of footballing history.
