Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was happy to see action in the win at Real Zaragoza.

The Frenchman concedes he's struggled to adjust to life in the Spanish Primera since his summer arrival from Lyon.

"It's always a pleasure to play, but it's hard because I have not managed to put together a number of games. So I lack rhythm. Although I train, you have to have minutes in competitive matches to be better," said Benzema.

"Sometimes you need to play more than others, it is the choice of the coach, this is a big club and so you must accept it."
