Real Madrid Equals Barcelona's Record After Win Over Granada

Ronaldo was honored by previous Ballon d'Or winners to have played for Madrid including Luis Figo, Michael Owen and his coach Zinedine Zidane before kick-off.

Cristiano Ronaldo paraded his fourth Ballon d'Or and powered home his first goal of 2017 as Real Madrid equalled Barcelona's Spanish record 39-game unbeaten run with a 5-0 demolition of lowly Granada on Saturday.

Ronaldo was honored by previous Ballon d'Or winners to have played for Madrid including Luis Figo, Michael Owen and his coach Zinedine Zidane before kick-off.

And Real's relentless run stretching back to April last year continued once the action got underway as they scored four in the opening half-hour.

Isco and Karim Benzema slotted home from close range before Ronaldo, who had been rested for Real's 3-0 Copa del Rey win over Sevilla in midweek, bulleted home a header from Marcelo's cross.

Another simple finish from Isco made it four before the break and Casemiro turned home James Rodriguez's free-kick for the fifth after half-time.

Defeat leaves Granada firmly rooted in the relegation zone with just nine points from 17 games.

At the top, Barca can close back to within three points of the leaders with victory at Villarreal on Sunday.
