Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas heaped praise Karim Benzema after the forward’s goal-scoring form continued on Thursday.

Benzema scored a first-half brace in Madrid’s 3-1 win over Girona as they sealed a 7-3 aggregate success in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.

The Frenchman has now netted five times in his past three games, moving onto 17 in all competitions this season.
