London, Feb.8 (ANI): Luka Modric smashed a stunning late winner to help Real Madrid claim their first away win since November after beating Granada 2-1 at Los Carmenes in their La Liga clash.

In the 30th minute of the match, forward Karim Benzema scored his 19th league goal of the season to put Real Madrid ahead, the Guardian reported.

Granada, which failed to score any goal in the first-half of the match, opened their account when forward Youssef El Arabi netted an equalizer in the 60th minute.

It was in the 85th minute when Modric struck a spectacular shot to give his side a well-deserved 2-1 win over Granada.

Madrid are currently third in standings and are four points behind top-placed Barcelona, while Granada are just one spot above the relegation zone.
