Real Madrid striker Benzema delighted with victory at Shakhtar Donetsk

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was delighted with their Champions League win at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Benzema scored and was voted man of the match on the night.

After the 5-0 win, he said, "It was a really important game. We deserved the three points, we scored a lot of goals and didn't concede any and it was a brilliant result for us. I hope I can keep this form up and help my team out on the pitch. That's the most important thing to me, getting the win and if I can chip in with goals and assists, all the better.

"Shakhtar are a good team, they're very good at home and put us under a lot of pressure. We managed the game well for the first 15 minutes and went on to win, scoring five goals in the process. This fills everyone with confidence. We're going to enjoy this result and then switch our attention to Sunday's Clásico."

On two goal Vinicius Junior, Benzema added: "He's still young, but deserves the credit he's getting now. He contributes with goals, assists and causes problems for the opposition, he's a star considering his age and I hope he keeps this up until the end of the season."
