Karim Benzema praised team-mate Eden Hazard in comments to 'Movistar' following the 4-1 win over Alaves in La Liga, in which he scored twice. The Frenchman said that his teammate seemed much better and that the team needs him.

Karim Benzema, French striker for Real Madrid, analysed the 1-4 victory against Alaves in La Liga. The win came on the heels of a hard elimination from the Copa del Rey at the hands of fourth division Alcoyano. The player described the win as a 'good game' that shows that the team is "on a good trajectory after a difficult week".

"The goals, the crosses, the passes... we work on that every day. The goals came today and it's good for everyone's confidence. We're on the right track after a bit of a tough week for us because we always want to win," he said on 'Movistar' after the match.

"It was a good game. Very good for our confidence because we know that every game is very difficult because every opponent makes it a little bit difficult for us. We always play against teams that are all behind. We came out wanting to play and it was a good game for us," he continued.

A win that puts Real Madrid four points behind leaders Atlético who have two games in hand: "We're looking at ourselves. The championship has a lot of games to go and we're going to continue like this".

Finally, Benzema analysed his team-mate Eden Hazard, who gave him an assist and scored a goal after a season that has also been difficult due to injuries: "I think that, at Chelsea, he was a player and now he has to make another story in Madrid. I see him much better, he works a lot in training. Today he did well and we need the best Hazard," he said.
