Thanks to a 2-0 win over Granada, Real Madrid were able to extend their winning streak to five matches, despite being rocked by injuries this season.

One of the players who played a crucial role in orchestrating this victory was Toni Kroos. The German produced a formidable display of calm and composure as he masterminded the Real Madrid midfield.

Andriy Lunin lauds Kroos after the win

Shortly after the victory, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin took a moment to commend the enduring brilliance of midfield maestro Toni Kroos.

“What Kroos did is not surprising; he has been playing this way for 15 years,” said Lunin, who was starting in between the sticks ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The comments from Lunin, who witnessed Kroos’ masterclass firsthand, as the German was indeed one of the best performers on the night.

Poetry in motion

Kroos was simply a ‘poetry in motion’ Granada, as he orchestrated the midfield with ball circulation and the ability to trick past the opposition’s second line of press.

The former Bayern Munich star most notably opened up the Granada defence to take part in the first goal. But he also looked very comfortable in midfield with Federico Valverde – their combination play seems to be improving with each passing day.

As Real Madrid continue to suffer from frequent injuries to star players, the presence of Toni Kroos could go a long way in helping the team maintain their lead at the top of the table.

Lunin, on the other hand, had a routine night against Granada. The Ukrainian has shown impressive form in recent games, but with Kepa pushing, he will continue to face pressure in the coming weeks.
