Hazard scores first Real Madrid goal with delightful lob. GOAL

Let's take a closer look at five statistics that illustrate either how good Real were as a whole in this 4-2 win over Granada, or they serve to highlight the individual performances of key players.

Valverde, who signed for Madrid in 2016 from Uruguyan club Penarol, has forced his way into the starting XI recently and played astutely alongside Casemiro in midfield as Real bounced back after their draw to Club Brugge in the Champions League.

Hazard netted his first goal since arriving at Madrid for a reported €100million from Chelsea in June and also provided an assist as Zinedine Zidane's men pulled four points clear at the top.

He hopes Real can tighten up at the back but is happy to see the club enter the worldwide break at the top of the LaLiga table.

"It was a really hard-fought win because Granada played really well, they're a strong side and that's why they're second in LaLiga, but we gave our all throughout the 90 minutes and won the game".

Real Madrid have made a awful start to their quest to regain the Champions League title in stark contrast to their form in the league.

"He's improving, he's doing exceptionally well and he's always moving forward, he wants to get on the ball and he had a hand in the goals".

'Valverde was great today, and I am very pleased for him, ' said Zidane.

Modric, who started the match on the bench, came on in the 34th minute and in the 61st minute he would make it 3-0 with a scorcher from 25 yards out which smashed into the top corner. Also on Saturday, Leganes stayed bottom of the table after losing 2-1 to Levante, while Valencia are now eighth following a 2-1 win over Alaves.

"We have to be more convincing, but we go into the break as leaders and we know the path to follow".
