'He's used to that' - Zidane praises in-form Benzema amid transfer rumours

"I didn't like our first half, but I think our second half was better", Zidane said.

"It's a really tricky season for everyone, it's hard to explain and we all feel sad, but the situation is complicated", said Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

The Frenchman said this ahead of Real Madrid's La Liga fixture against Leganes on Monday night.

The performance sees the Los Blancos fall 13 points adrift of La Liga leaders Barcelona and four points off city rivals Atletico in second spot. "We have to try and perform better because it's our duty".

Leganes' lead was short-lived, though, Benzema - who had been played in brilliantly by Luka Modric - tucking home at the second attempt from a tight angle following a fine initial save from Cuellar.

Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal doesn't think it's necessary for a complete overhaul at the Bernabeu in the summer despite another tame result on Monday.

Zinedine Zidane does not believe that Karim Benzema has been affected by rumours that Real Madrid are looking to replace him for next season.

But Karim Benzema looks set to remain as Real's focal point in attack next season after scoring his 27th goal of the campaign yesterday. Things may be about to get worse for Bale as Vinicius Junior's return from injury in the coming weeks is likely to drop him deeper into the bench. "In the end, he is a fantastic player and this year he has changed, which means more goals", he told a news conference.

The hosts had a chance to go 1-0 up early in the 11th minute but Youssef El-Nesyri's goal was correctly disallowed for offside. "It's hard to get into a game when you only play 10 or 15 minutes, but substitutions are made to change the game and we were unable to do that". "But we have to be professional and win the games we have left".
