The meringue team won 2-1 at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes and took Barcelona four points ahead with six to play in La Liga.
Real Madrid begins to savor the title of The league in Spain. The meringue team beat him this Monday for 2-1 to Pomegranate at New Los Cármenes Stadium and, in the absence of two dates for the closing of the championship, he again took four points from Barcelona at the top of the table.
Zinedine Zidane’s team stepped out onto the field with the intention of changing the narrative and shutting up the critics who had spoken more about the “help” of the VAR in recent matches than about the performance of the Merengue.
The Whites had a stunning first quarter of an hour: Frenchman Ferland Mendy opened the scoring with a great run and a great left-handed definition, while his compatriot Karim Benzema defined a counter with an accurate right-footed shot.
It was an extremely dominant first half for Madrid, which had almost no risky plays in the Thibaut Courtois goal. But that would change categorically in the plugin.
The second 45 minutes began in the best way for the Nasrids, who advanced the lines, and already in their first option of danger they broke the resistance of the bleacher with a great definition of the Venezuelan Darwin Machís.
And it was Merengue’s turn to suffer in the final minutes: Granada, eager and good football, tried by all means to get the equalizer goal, but, luckily for the aspirations of Zidane and company, they did not end up achieving it. Sergio Ramos, captain and maximum reference of the white team, saved one of the last arrivals of the Rojiblancos on the line. A move that can be worth a championship.
In this way, Real Madrid kept the three points, continues with a perfect record since football returned and, more importantly, only needs two more units in the last two matches to cut the hegemony of Barcelona and claim the crown of champion .
In addition to Machís, the Venezuelan Yangel Herrera was the starter in Granada, while the Uruguayan Federico Valverde started at Real Madrid.
