Benzema is enjoying his best goalscoring form for Real in some years and was again on the mark in victory over Leganes.
Butragueno said, "He has a particular facility to associate with his teammates and in addition, he scored two goals.
"His offensive work is always of great value to the team, which is good news. He scored two and the attackers need to shake the nets.
"It's good for morale and his start to the season is fantastic."
