Ronaldo will miss his fourth straight away game in LaLiga as Los Blancos take on Granada. Without him, Madrid have won every game and have a better goal average.

A well-earned rest

Zinedine Zidane continues with his plans to rest Cristiano Ronaldo wherever possible. Real Madrid's Saturday evening game against Granada (20:45 CET) will be no different, marking the fourth game on the bounce in which Zidane will leave the Portuguese striker on the bench - a tactic which would have been unthinkable before this season. 

No Cristiano, no problem 

However, the Real faithful needn't be too concerned: in the eight games Cristiano has been absent, Los Blancos have a one hundred percent record. In the last three away games Ronaldo has missed, his team-mates have responded with 13 goals, chalking up wins against Leganés (2-4), Sporting (2-3) and Deportivo (2-6)

Goals galore

Moreover. in the total of eight games the Portuguese has watched from the sidelines, Zidane's side have bagged 27 goals, with an average of 3.3 goals per game, compared with Real Madrid's overall average of 2.7 per game this season
