Real Madrid swatted aside Granada 4-1 on Thursday to ensure the La Liga title race will go down to the wire.

First-half strikes from Luka Modric and Rodrygo put the visitors in control, and even when Jorge Molina halved the deficit on 71 minutes they rarely looked troubled.

Substitute Alvaro Odriozola restored Real’s two-goal advantage after 75 minutes and less than 60 seconds later Karim Benzema made it four after latching onto an error from Granada keeper Rui Silva.

Should Real fail to beat Bilbao, Atletico will be champions if it overcomes Osasuna.
