Real Madrid moved within touching distance of the Spanish title with a 2-1 victory over Granada which saw Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy find the back of the net.

Zinedine Zidane’s side now knows that a win over Villarreal on Thursday night will see them officially crowned champions, with Los Blancos four points clear of Barcelona at the top of La Liga with just two games left to play.

It took the visitors to the Nuevo Los Carmenes just 10 minutes to open the scoring, with Mendy lashing home a finish at the near post with ferocious power.
