Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated lifting the Ballon d'Or for the fourth time with his first goal of 2017 as Real Madrid equaled the Spanish record of arch-rival, Barcelona with a 5-0 rout of Granada Saturday -- its 39th game unbeaten.

Portugal's Ronaldo showed off his FIFA World Player of the Year trophies before the kickoff in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

To mark the occasion, other Real Madrid winners of the Ballon d'Or were paraded, including his compatriot Luis Figo, Brazil's Ronaldo, Michael Owen and home coach, Zinedine Zidane.

The star-studded guest list witnessed a one-sided affair as La Liga's bottom club Granada was unable to cope with Real's attacking threat which saw Los Blancos four-up inside 31 minutes.

Isco was first on the score sheet after an interchange with Karim Benzema, who quickly grabbed the second goal.

Ronaldo headed home Marcelo's cross for the goal in the rout of Granada, his 17th of the season.

Ronaldo, rested for the midweek Copa del Rey win over Sevilla, then powered home his 17th of the season from a Marcelo cross to get off the mark for the year.

Luka Modric set up Isco for the fourth as Real coasted to victory.

The only goal of the second half saw Casemiro net after a James Rodriguez free kick, Real moving six points clear of Barcelona with the Catalans facing a difficult trip to Villarreal Sunday.

European champion Real is unbeaten since April last year, to match the record set by Barcelona, which went from October 2015 to March 2016 without a loss in all competitions.

"There is no limit, but we have to do everything possible to make sure it lasts," said Zidane of his team's incredible streak. (cnn.com)
