VALENCIA DEFEAT TO COST RIBES DINNER

Pepe Ribes will have to foot the bill for dinner with Telefónica team mate Ñeti Cuervas-Mons after Real Madrid edged Valencia 3-2 in the latest edition of one of the great Spanish soccer grudge matches on Saturday.

It will be a case of read it and weep for Ribes when the match results are sent through to the boat after Valencia's fightback fell just short at Mestalla on Saturday.

Ribes had been banking on his beloved Valencia avenging their 6-3 defeat by Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid in the same fixture last season but instead he will have to pay up on the bet he made to camera on Friday.

"It's maximum rivalry," Ribes had said. "We need to get last season's defeat off our backs. I hope Valencia win ... 1-0..."

Ñeti interrupted to goad his team mate about current league leaders Real and suggest that dinner should ride on the result.

"Real Madrid are the best team in history, no, Pepe?" he says. "I remember the hammering Real Madrid gave Valencia when we went there..."

Ribes retorted: "That memory is going to be wiped out tomorrow when we know the result."

That proved optimistic and it will be Ñeti enjoying bragging rights for the rest of the leg, as well as a slap-up meal at his team mate's expense when they get there.
