Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane says he enjoys high scoring football matches after his side came from behind to a claim a thrilling 5-3 victory over Real Betis.

Benzema was at the end of jeers from his own supporters after an underwhelming 68 minutes in the 3-1 UEFA Champions League last-16 victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Goals from Ronaldo, Marco Asensio (2), Ramos and Benzema gave Madrid all three points over Real Betis at the Benito Villamarin. I think that Real Madrid will score a mountain of goals since that is a trait which they have shown against the weaker teams.

That would potentially rule Kroos out of La Liga matches against Real Betis, Leganes, Alaves and Espanyol.

'They are doing very well, they play on the wing and open the pitch for us as well as doing a lot of defensive work'.

Only Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, with 25 and nine respectively, have scored more than Asensio's eight in all competitions this season.

Asensio duly headed Madrid into an 11th-minute lead after Antonio Adan had saved a Ronaldo shot, but Betis had won when the sides last met at the Santiago Bernabeu and they hit back brilliantly.

"I'm happy for today's game, and for how things are going, and I hope to continue with this good dynamic of the team". I don't focus on the three goals conceded, I focus on the five goals scored. Madrid are in fourth place, 10 points behind Atletico Madrid in second, albeit having played one game less. And Asensio has praised Zidane for inspiring the comeback. They controlled the last half an hour of the game.

Zidane however said: "Hopefully Marcelo's [injury] isn't much. You've got to recognise the job that Marco did and the same goes for Lucas Vázquez, who performed very well on the other flank".
