Karim Benzema, Casemiro magic helps Real Madrid go top of LaLiga

Benzema produced a moment of magic to set up Casemiro in Madrid's 1-0 victory that sent them two points clear atop La Liga on Sunday.

- What did you miss?

Courtois is now in the top spot to win the Zamora Trophy, which is handed to the 'keeper that concedes the least amount of goals in LaLiga Santander compared the amount of games they have played.

Brazilian midfielder Casemiro slid to the ground to guide the ball home on the stroke of halftime after being played in by a stroke of genius from Benzema, who dragged the ball through the legs of his marker Bernardo Espinosa to find his team mate.

"The goal belongs to Karim. We have to congratulate him, it's a top-class backheel", Casemiro said.

"What Karim did, for me is normal". He has the quality of a No. 10, not a No. 9. I asked for the ball in space, and his backheel pass was incredible.

Ramos and Zidane played together in the 2005-06 season, which was Zidane's last as a player and Ramos' first at the club. "I hope he stays with us to the end".

Part of that success has been an impressive defensive record, with just 21 goals conceded in La Liga this season, the fewest of any team.

Espanyol's Espinosa was inches away from connecting with a ball which flashed across the face of goal while Real defender Marcelo was forced to block a shot in added time which he nearly deflected into his own net but the ball skidded wide. We are winning now, but like I said, today we've yet to win the title. "Each game is a final".

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has revealed he has no plans to have a long managerial career as he feels the pressure of the La Liga title fight will take it's toll and force him to pack it in early. "It's the most recent one".

"Ramos and Varane are exceptional", said Zidane. It's a lovely team goal. "It was a nice assist but the goal was more important, Casemiro did well and got us three important points after a very hard game". A player improves all the time and that's what's happening with Karim. He's at a very good age, up to 32-33 years old, if you look after yourself like he does, these are the best years for a footballer. On the move that decided the match, the coach said: "I think the most attractive goal is this one, because it's the most alive and the good thing is that it's a team move". The same thing will happen here.

Eibar started the day in the final spot outside the relegation zone, but victory takes them up to 15th on 35 points, nine clear of the relegation places with six matches left to play.
