Granada 1-4 Real Madrid Player Ratings: Zidane's side move into second with first Modric goal since December

Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid side sit just two points off first-placed Atletico Madrid after beating Granada 4-1 on Thursday night

Real Madrid leapfrogged Barcelona into second place in the Spanish top flight on Thursday with a convincing 4-1 victory over Granada.

Zinedine Zidane’s side needed all three points to keep the pressure on league leaders Atletico and that’s exactly what they did with goals from a few unlikely candidates.

  • Luka Modric has undoubtedly been one of Madrid’s most consistent players this season but the senior midfielder has rarely been a source of goals for Zidane’s side.

    However, that changed on Thursday night when Modric popped up after just 17 minutes when the midfielder latched on to a through ball from Miguel Gutierrez in front of the Granada goalkeeper to stick the ball into the back of the net with a superb finish.

    Not only was it an important opening goal for the Spanish giants but it was also Modric’s first for his club since late December.

  • The theme of the night certainly seemed to be Madrid goals from unlikely sources, as Modric’s unexpected opening goal was matched by a second from Rodrygo.

    Although the young winger is exactly the kind of player that should be scoring goals on a regular basis for Zidane’s side, the Brazilian hasn’t started a game since late April and hasn’t scored for the capital side since early November.

    Regardless, Rodrygo was in the right place at the right time on Thursday night as the winger pulled off a remarkable individual goal by darting into the opposing box and firing the ball into the opposing corner of the net.

  • Despite having a relatively quiet evening, Madrid were still able to call upon their proven talisman to add goals to the drama when it was called upon.

    After Granada pulled a goal back to make it 2-1, Alvaro Odriozola and then Karim Benzema scored two goals in as many minutes to ensure all three points for Zidane’s side.

    It was Benzema’s goal in particular - a cool finish after taking advantage of a miss kick from the goalkeeper - which undoubtedly stood out as it put the French striker on 29 goals for the season.
