Karim Benzema is delighted with his current goal scoring form at Real Madrid.

Benzema now has 20 for the season in all competitions, and he is aiming to add to that against Atletico as Madrid look to keep the pressure up on Primera Division leaders Barcelona.

"Now I have some luck and my team-mates are giving me a lot of balls to score goals. Mentally and physically I'm very well, but I'm going to continue working to be a success here. Hopefully this situation will continue as it has been," he told Onda Cero.

"I want to play and score (against Atletico)," added the France international, who admits his side need to be wary of the threat posed by Atletico strike duo Sergio Aguero and Diego Forlan.

"They are very dangerous forwards but we are going to Atletico to win this important match."
