Real Madrid was to beat Granada to close up the game between them and Atletico Madrid; they are willing to pressure the leaders Atletico at the top of La Liga. The defending champions are now two points behind Atletico with two games left to play in the La Liga before the league finishes.
Real Madrid still in Title Race
Former Tottenham star player Luka Modric gave Real the lead from Miguel Gutierrez’s scooped pass before Rodrygo doubled the lead through a fine solo goal. The home side was unwilling to go down without a fight as Jorge Molina opened the scoring for Granada.
Their hope was brought back to life, but it was not long before Eden Hazard set up Alvaro Odriozola for the third goal to make it 3-1. Not long from that time, he still set up Karim Benzema to score the fourth from 40 yards after a goalkeeping error.
Real Madrid’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. Atletico Madrid will be crowned champions on Sunday if they beat Osasuna and Real Madrid fail to beat Athletic Bilbao.
