Benzema feeling better about life at Real Madrid

Karim Benzema was delighted to get on the scoresheet for Real Madrid in their win over Almeria.

The French striker has struggled for form since his arrival from Lyon, but insists he's happy with his decision to join Real.

"When I'm home, I learn Spanish," said Benzema. "I now get along better with my teammates and this translates into a better feeling on the ground. I'm very comfortable here.

"Anyway, four months is not long enough to prove yourself. This is a very big club and there is a lot of pressure. I do not play too often, but I understand. I am not in the top team and there is lots of competition.

"I think yesterday I played a good match and I am very happy."
