Much of the pre-match focus was on Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo all being named in the starting XI but Zidane set his team up nominally in a 4-4-2 formation, with the Wales global and Lucas Vazquez impressing on the flanks.

Though Bale has scored nine goals this season, he has struggled to establish himself as a member of Zinedine Zidane's first-team, unable to find the back of the net in his last six games.

Benzema had snapped a run of almost three months without a league goal by scoring against Real Betis last weekend and although he squandered a couple of chances he was one of Real's best performers in what was a fifth consecutive win in all competitions for Zidane's side.

Gareth Bale makes his second start in five games in an increasingly rare "BBC" link-up with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

"Cristiano's gesture speaks volumes for the type of team this is and how he is as a person", Navas said post-match, according to Goal.

"But at the moment we have more of the consistency that we want in our play, our focus. Karim deserved this, to score a goal, as he had played a very good game".

Reigning La Liga champions Real Madrid will be hoping to pick up all three points when they go head to head against Deportivo Alaves at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

Bale added a second just seconds into the second half, finishing off a move that involved both Ronaldo and Benzema. "The four in attack played very well".

Real Madrid have scored at least 3 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches in the Spanish top flight. The Frenchman powered forward and laid the ball off for Bale, with the 28-year-old winger finishing with aplomb to end a run of six games without scoring.

Barcelona leads second-place Atletico Madrid by 10 points before the latter faces a tough trip to Sevilla on Sunday.

In the 60th minute, Ronaldo bagged his second and Los Blancos' third, by turning home Lucas Vazquez's low cross into the bottom corner.
