Gareth Bale Pulled Off An Incredible 'Banana Assist' For Karim Benzema To Score Real Madrid's Opener

Gareth Bale Pulled Off An Incredible 'Banana Assist' For Karim Benzema To Score Real Madrid's Opener

Gareth Bale produced a sublime outside-of-the-foot assist for Karim Benzema to open the scoring for Real Madrid against Granada.

The Welsh winger, 30, received the ball out on the right early on before dribbling forward and unleashing a bending pass to the Madrid striker.

And Benzema welcomed the magnificent pass as his side-footed shot beat Rui Silva with ease in the second minute.

Fans have flocked to social media to praise Bale for pulling off a "world-class" assist.

Zinedine Zidane's men doubled their lead in the first half of injury time through marquee summer signing Eden Hazard.

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.
