It was a special Saturday as Cristiano Ronaldo presented his fourth Ballon d'Or at the Bernabeu before Real Madrid thrashed Granada 5-0 to extend their unbeaten run in all competition to 39 games, equalling the Spanish club record set by Barcelona last season.
Cristiano Ronaldo was also on target after a pre-match presentation to celebrate his fourth Ballon d'Or win, with Karim Benzema and Casemiro the other Madrid players among the goals to maintain the momentum from the 3-0 midweek win over Sevilla in the Copa del Rey.
Four minutes later and it was four and it was Isco who grabbed his second of the afternoon, tapping home Modric's cross in the 31st minute.
Casemiro became the 20th player to score to Madrid this season when converting James Rodriguez's free kick, and Zidane said he put special emphasis on ensuring all of his squad members felt important and valued.
The victory endorsed Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane's fearless decision to leave Ronaldo out as he capped a dream debut year in charge at the Bernabeu with three trophies and just two defeats in 54 games.
4-0 after the first half, and 5-0 at fulltime.

Patriots Clinch Home-Field Advantage
It was expected that the Patriots would win in Miami , though the Dolphins are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008. In case they are still banged up at wide receiver, newly acquired Michael Floyd played very well against the Dolphins.
Ben Yedder completed his hat-trick with seven minutes to play when Nico Pareja split the Sociedad defence and the striker drove his shot low into the net.
Isco opened the scoring with a low shot from inside the area after a mistake by the Granada defense while trying to move the ball forward, and Benzema - from an offside position - added to the lead off the rebound of a shot by Luka Modric.
Los Blancos had ended Barcelona's record-breaking run last season with a 2-1 win at the Nou Camp and have not been beaten since going down 2-0 to Wolfsburg in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal last April.
Ronaldo made it three seven minutes later after Marcelo turned Triguero Tito inside out down the left channel and chipped over an inviting cross that was easily headed home by the Portugal global. But he was unable to really take advantage of the struggling side's appalling defending here.
