Eden Hazard scored his first goal with Real Madrid in style on Saturday as the club faced Granada at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid. Los Blancos ended up winning 4-2 thanks to goals from Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and James Rodriguez.

After Benzema opened the scoring, Hazard finally got his goal just before the break. The Belgian received the ball near the Granada box in the 45th minute, then charged ahead toward the goal. He opted for some touch on his shot, opting to loft the ball over goalie Rui Silva with a beautiful chip to give Real Madrid a 2-0 lead.


The former Chelsea star signed with Real Madrid in June after seven seasons in the Premier League. Hazard won two Premier League crowns with Chelsea.

Real Madrid's win came in good time for Zinedine Zidane, who needed a result after an unconvincing midweek draw with Club Brugge in the Champions League.
