Both Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo scored in the 3-2 win.
On Benzema, Zidane said: "We always get the same from Karim. He gives everything to the team. Today he's done well but aside from today and the game against APOEL, he looks happy, he's worked hard. The fans have the final say, and he got a standing ovation today."
For Ronaldo, Zidane added: “He always has chances to score. You've got to look at the goalkeeper too, because sometimes, the goalie just has one of those days... I remember how good their keeper was when we played Betis. Cristiano had 2 or 3 great chances today, but the goalie kept them out.
"In the end, Karim and Cristiano have both scored and we have to be positive. I'd like to win 6 or 7 in a row, but we've got time."
