Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, Says Karim Benzema is playing “on a different level” after helping Los Blancos to another win.

Benzema scored one and laid on two assists, as Madrid made it five straight wins in all competitions by defeating Eibar 3-1 in LaLiga on Sunday.

It was the 30th time the French striker has scored and assisted in the same league game.

Only Cristiano Ronaldo (44) has done it more often for Madrid in the 21st century.

Madrid are now joint top with city rivals Atletico, with 29 points, although Diego Simeone’s men have played two fewer games.
