After two years of domestic disappointment, Zinedine Zidane said in April that La Liga would be Real Madrid's priority this season and they remain unbeaten, as they get ready to face Granada and have three consecutive clean sheets in the league.
Yet aside from an excellent win away at Sevilla last month, Zidane's team have looked laboured, particularly at the Santiago Bernabeu, where the tension and frustration in the stands has regularly taken hold on the pitch. Eden Hazard has been sluggish and the midfield stodgy.
On the other hand, Thibaut Courtois was unavailable after he did not play the second half of Madrid's 2-2 draw vs Club Brugge in the Champions League. It was reported that Courtois had been diagnosed with anxiety, even though Madrid denied it and said he was suffering from acute gastroenteritis. Marcelo also misses due to a leg injury.
Promoted after finishing second in Segunda last term, Diego Martinez's Granada have made a remarkable start, even if their coach feigns ignorance about their heady place in the table.
"We are not interested," he said last month. "I don't look at the table. In May, I will."
