Real Madrid have kept pace with Barcelona at the top of the table, with a 4-nil thrashing of Granada, thanks to Hames Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata, who scored a brace each for Zinedine Zidane’s men.

On Saturday, The Galactico’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was Rested for the Champions League semis, but Real had no difficulty dealing Granada a 5th straight loss, with a Squad consisting of many second-choice players.

They scored all the 4 goals in the first half. Rodriguez needed three minutes to kick off the scoring by bundling in Lucas Vazquez's arrowed cross, before heading in a cross from Fabio Coentrao in the 11th.

Morata put the game out of reach in the 30th minute, and then wrapped up the scoring by blasting past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa from the left side of the box, to take Real level on 84 points with Barcelona. The 2 are now only separated by goal difference, but Real do have a game in hand.
