Real Madrid striker Benzema: Hazard connection quickly developing

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is delighted playing with Eden Hazard.

The pair are expected to start today against Real Sociedad.

Benzema said, "The connection is that he's a great player who knows how to play one touch and move around the field. In training we play one and two touches and I really like it."

The Frenchman also is pleased for Marco Asensio, who scored in their last win against Valencia.

Benzema added: "I'm really happy and glad for him because he's worked hard. He's looked in good shape for a month now, I hope he stays that way."
