In the 56th minute of Real Madrid’s La Liga tie against Granada this evening, Zinedine Zidane’s men have taken the lead from a towering header.
Ferland Mendy slipped Marco Asensio down to the byline with a fine through ball, the attacking midfielder stood firm after a challenge and floated a dangerous cross into the box.
Casemiro arrived at the far post and absolutely dominated his man by leaping into the air with a Cristiano Ronaldo-like jump before steering the ball into the back of the net.
