Real Madrid came out on top at the Nuevo Los Cármenes to keep up the pressure on leaders Atletico Madrid in the fight for the LaLiga title.
The defending champions are two points behind Atleti with two games to go.
Luka Modric gave Real the lead from Miguel Gutierrez’s scooped pass and Rodrygo scored with a fine solo goal.
Veteran Jorge Molina gave Granada hope but Eden Hazard set up Alvaro Odriozola and moments later Karim Benzema scored into an empty net from 40 yards after a goalkeeping error.
Real’s two first-half goals were assisted by players born in the 2000s, Gutierrez – making his first La Liga start – and Marvin Park, who had a spell on Tranmere’s books as a child.
The victory at the Nuevo Los Cármenes means Madrid are now unbeaten in their last 16 LaLiga games (11 wins). The run began back on the 6th of February in Huesca and the Whites haven’t lost a game in the domestic competition in over three months.
