Real Madrid 9-1 Granada - REPORT

Carlo Ancelotti’s side had to wait until the 25 minute to take the lead through Gareth Bale, but the opener only opened the floodgates as Ronaldo scored a hat-trick before half-time to give Real a 4-0 lead.

And Los Blancos continued with such gusto after the break, with Ronaldo adding another and Karim Benzema bagging a double.

Double figures looked to be on the cards, as La Liga’s second-bottom side crumbled all over the pitch, but a number of changes saw the flow of the contest stemmed.

Granada grabbed a consolation goal before a Diego Mainz own goal and another Ronaldo goal gave Real Madrid a sensational 9-1 win – the biggest margin of victory in La Liga this season.
