James Rodriguez scores 10-minute brace against Granada

That was fast.

Just three minutes into their La Liga match at Granada and Real Madrid have a 1-0 lead. Lucas Vazquez set up James Rodriguez for a really simple opening goal after some horrendous defending from the hosts. It’s a big goal for Los Blancos after Barcelona have already won today. They’ll need to grab a full three points today to keep their pace ahead of their rivals atop the table.

Just a few minutes later and James has done it again. He got on the end of a cross from the left flank to head past Memo Ochoa to make it 2-0 just 10 minutes into the match.
