Goals? Well why not... last year’s Real Madrid v Granada had 10 of them as Real Madrid gave the men from Andalucia a 9-1 thumping.
Bale opened the scoring last year with a brace from Benzema, oh, and another 5 from Ronaldo! And what better match for the headbanded boyo Bale to get back in favour with the Bernabeu faithful.
Gareth Bale’s second season was hardly quiet as, despite maintaining 100% fitness, more or less, he took stick for his failure to integrate in the team (and also moaned that his mates weren’t passing to him, while blowing strands of hair from over his eyes). Amid jeers from the terraces there were even some calls for…gulp…an acromonious dismissal from the Real Madrid squad (that couldn’t happen, surely ?).

As Real seek to get things back on course under new manager Rafa Benitez, Will Granada be forced to “take a haircut” ? Well Bale maybe should be, but it’s it’s the on-field skills, and not image, of players like Ronaldo, Jese and Modric that the fans will come along to see, not to mention the ever-jumpy Marcelo.
Get your tickets for Real Madrid v Granada here and watch the goals flood in one every 9 minutes Granada Manager Juan Ramon Sandoval may have his work cut out, but the first priority wil be to avoid the sort of drubbing they took in last season’s game at the Bernabeu, in order to consolidate the team in the Spanish first division, after narrowly avoiding relegation last year.
You may think new Granada keeper Andrés Fernandez would be the key for a Granada team that performed well on one-off occasions last year, but also look out for lively forwards Youssef El-arabi and Piti, capable of surprising a Madrid defence that let in some bad goals last year.
