Real Madrid got a win over Granada by two goals. It could’ve been a lot more if it wasn’t for a big play from Granada’s goal keeper. From about six-seven yards out, FIFA Ballon d’Or winner got a cross from Luka Modric in the box and went for a bicycle to send it home. The goal was on target and the Grenada goalkeeper Roberto made an incredible save.

The ball bounced back into play where Gareth Bale tried to head home the rebound. He also saved that attempt on goal. It was the second kick in the nuts for Bale in the game, of course the other one was an actual kick in the nuts.

It is an incredible play and save as the first half came to an end. Ronaldo finally put Madrid on the board with a goal in the 57th minute and Karim Benzema scored 18 minutes later.

The win moves Real Madrid to the top of the La Liga table.
