Carlo Ancelotti’s men returned to action a short time ago.

In their first outing post-international break, Los Blancos made the trip to the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes, for a La Liga showdown with the aforementioned Granada.

Real headed into proceedings aware that a victory would guide them back to the summit of the Spanish top-flight, clear of surprise contenders Real Sociedad and Sevilla.

And, when all was said and done, secure their latest three-point haul is precisely what the visitors managed, in dominant fashion.

A fine attacking display ultimately culminated in Real emerging on the right side of a 4-1 scoreline, owing to goals from all of Marco Asensio, Nacho, Vinicius Jr. and Ferland Mendy.

Brazilian wide-man Vinicius has of course enjoyed a scintillating campaign to date, finally adding a long overdue element of finished product to his game, to the tune of a hefty ten goals and five assists across all competitions.
