They pressured their visitors for more goals having opened the scoring with about 30 minutes left to play but it looked like nothing was going to happen again.

However, after making several efforts, Benzema finally found the back of the net in added minutes after powering a long-range shot from 20 yards out.

The Frenchman continued to rack up the numbers for the Galacticos after receiving a precise pass from Isco before driving past two Granada players and then unleashed the shot when the coast was clear.

Zidane's men are now second on the table with 32 points - the same as their rivals Atletico Madrid who have played two games less.
