Real Madrid 4-2 Granada: 3 reasons why Los Blancos won the match | LaLiga 2019/2020
- We take a look at some of the main reasons that Real Madrid registered a win against Granada.
#2 Eden Hazard was in inspired form
Ever since arriving the Santiago Bernabeu over the summer for a club-record fee, things have not exactly gone according to plan for Eden Hazard, as he has struggled to make an impact on games.
His delayed debut due to injury undoubtedly played a part, but heading into this clash, the 28-year-old had yet to score or assist a goal in five matches for Real Madrid and the questions were already being asked of him by an ever-demanding Real Madrid fanbase.
After yet another subdued performance in midweek against Club Brugge, the Belgian international responded with his best performance in a white jersey to date.
He was one hand to open his Real Madrid account right on the stroke of half-time when he calmly lobbed the ball over Rui Silva after being played in by Federico Valverde.
Sixteen minutes into the second half, Hazard teed up Luka Modric from 30 yards out and the Croatian international unleashed an unstoppable screamer to put Real Madrid 3-0 up.
A few minutes later, Eden Hazard was substituted for Isco having done the damage to Granada already, and with the form he showed against Los Nazaríes, Real Madrid can be confident in their chances of achieving their quest this season.Published 05 Oct 2019, 23:52 IST
