Real Madrid 5 – 0 Granada as Isco, Benzema and Ronaldo first half strikes secure all three points, Los Blancos destroy visitors to move six points clear at the top of La Liga.
Real Madrid resume their Spanish La Liga campaign this saturday afternoon and they thumped Granada at Santiago Bernabue scoring four goals in incredible first half display. Zidane started with Ronaldo, Benzema and Isco upfront and trio were in superb form where Isco grabbed a brace while Benzema and Ronaldo scored goal a piece to pretty much end the contest in first 30 minutes. Granada has a long second half where Madrid might pile more misery on helpless Granada side.
Real Madrid strolled to a 5-0 win over a poor Granada side to go six points clear at the top of La Liga. Zinedine Zidane’s side is now undefeated for the entire season but didn’t even have to try to win this non-battle.
The difference in quality between the two sides was visible before kick-off as Cristiano Ronaldo was joined on the pitch by fellow former Ballon d’Or winners Ronaldo, Michael Owen, Luis Figo and his manager, Zinedine Zidane, to accept his fourth shiny golden trophy.
Isco scored twice for Real Madrid, who have not lost a competitive fixture since 6 April, La Liga leaders Real Madrid equalled Barcelona’s Spanish record of 39 consecutive matches unbeaten as they swatted aside a woeful Granada. Zinedine Zidane’s side were 4-0 up after 32 minutes, with Isco slotting in their first from Karim Benzema’s pass. Benzema converted after Guillermo Ochoa spilled a Luka Modric shot, before Cristiano Ronaldo headed a third. Isco tapped in a Modric cross, and midfielder Casemiro touched home a fifth from James Rodriguez’s free-kick.
