Luka Modric's sensational strike helped Real Madrid scrape a late 2-1 win at struggling Granada.
Karim Benzema put Zinedine Zidane's men ahead on the half-hour mark, but the hosts refused to wilt and got a deserved equaliser when Youssef El Arabi poked the ball through Keylor Navas' legs.
Modric had given the ball away for the equaliser after colliding with the referee, but made amends by winning the match late on with a breathtaking finish.
In the build-up to this game, head coach Zidane said victory...

The victory takes Villarreal level with third-placed Real Madrid on 44 points, although the Merengues face Espanyol on Sunday.
Granada stay two points above the relegation zone but the four teams below them all play later this weekend.
