FULL TIME: Granada 0 – 4 Real Madrid

With the Liga title already in the bag, Real Madrid could have been forgiven for taking their eye off the ball and focusing on a UEFA Champions League final meeting with Borussia Dortmund. Not a bit of it, as the Blancos claimed a resounding victory over Granada. Carlo Ancelotti’s Real have three games remaining in La Liga before a clash with Dortmund at Wembley Stadium.

Real Madrid enjoyed a comfortable 4-0 win away to Granada in their first La Liga game since being crowned champions after the hosts had been relegated to the second division earlier in the day.

Carlo Ancelotti was able to rest his star players with a Champions League final on the horizon as he made 10 changes from the team that started against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

Brahim Diaz’s excellent second-half brace, with a moment of individual quality before rounding off an excellent team move earned him the Player of the Match award.

Francisco Garcia had opened the scoring for the visitors in the first half before turning provider as he set up Turkish youngster Arda Guler to double their lead on the stroke of half-time.

Myrto Uzuni had the best of the half-chances that fell for the hosts, who were perhaps somewhat deflated after seeing their fate to La Liga 2 sealed by Mallorca’s win in an earlier kick-off.
