Real Madrid coach Ancelotti dismisses Benzema doubts after double penalty failure

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Karim Benzema remains their penalty taker after victory at Osasuna.

Benzema missed TWICE from the spot on Wednesday night.

But Ancelotti said, “If we'd been awarded another penalty, he would've taken it too and the one after that.

"The only player who misses a penalty is the one who is brave enough to take one. He produced an amazing performance and did really well for the team."

Ancelotti also had a positive word for Eduardo Camavinga.

He added, “This game was a good experience for him because he picked up a booking very early on and the way he performed reflected the fact that he was on a booking. He changed his approach and did well. He made sure he didn't get sent off."
