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."
