Granada squandered possession in a dangerous area and Federico Valverde slotted the ball into the path of the 28-year-old ex-Chelsea superstar, who lobbed Silva with a cool finish.

Luka Modric would put Madrid 3-0 up in the second half, only for Darwin Machis to pull one back for his side from the spot-kick.

Zidane's side were stunned as Domingos Duarte scored a second for Granada, but James Rodriguez fired home in injury time as Los Blancos cemented a 4-2 win at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Madrid manager, who has been under pressure after his side's poor Champions League campaign, has said that he is "going to fight right until my last day."

He continued: "I know where I am and that's always the case.

"That's what the role of a coach is like for all of us.

"I'm going to fight right until my last day because I enjoy what I do and feel as if I'm up to it."

Madrid are top of La Liga and will resume their campaign after next week's international break.
