"He has not had many minutes and keeps working, he is fantastic and I remember the game against Alaves (Real won the away game 2-1 in September) when he scored two goals".
Sections of the Santiago Bernabeu jeered the French striker when he lost his footing to skew a glorious opportunity wide with the game locked at 0-0.
The Frenchman then set up Bale for number two before Vazquez's cross for Ronaldo and that late penalty, just reward for Benzema's contribution as the BBC found their form in impressive style.
However, Real's regular penalty-taker instead gave Benzema the chance to net for only the fourth time in La Liga this season and potentially ease some of the pressure on his head. Ceballos? I was sorry I had to line him up only 30 minutes long aganst Leganés, I told him when the match was over.
"This shows he is a team player".
Los Blancos are on a six-game unbeaten run in LaLiga heading into Saturday's visit from Alaves, scoring 26 goals in the process.

A very satisfying afternoon at the Bernabéu!
Ronaldo returned to the starting line-up after being rested for Wednesday's game with Leganes and after shaking off a painful ankle knock the Portuguese put Real ahead on the stroke of halftime, taking advantage of a clever backheel from Benzema. "I do not like what happened", he said. "They played a very good game, also Lucas Vazquez, the four up-front all played very well". I do not want him to get injured again.
"I see Bale like all of them and I count on all of them. And that comes with recovering confidence, which is fundamental for a player". According to Marca, Isco will equal Zidane's appearance record for Real Madrid if he plays against Alaves.
"Their second goal was key, for sure", Abelardo told reporters. His goal came 28 seconds after the restart, Real's quickest second-half goal since 2004.
Real Madrid's chances of retaining the Spanish title have all but ended due to Barcelona's incredible season, although Zidane's side now have second-placed Atletico firmly in their sights.
