Real Madrid No2 Aitor Karanka praised Mesut Ozil after his two goals in victory over Real Betis.

Madrid ran out comfortable 3-1 victors yesterday.

"We know the kind of player he is, what he creates, even when he isn't as brilliant as we are used to. He didn't play in Bilbao last week because he was carrying a niggle and to have these sensations after playing for 90 minutes was important for him. He played well," said Karanka.
