Karim Benzema backed by Marcelo, Butragueno over Lineker criticism

Zinedine Zidane hits back at former Barcelona striker Gary Lineker for his remarks about Karim Benzema on social media.
With just two goals in eight games for Real Madrid this season, the FC guys debate whether or not Karim Benzema is overrated.

Real Madrid vice-captain Marcelo and director Emilio Butragueno have followed coach Zinedine Zidane in defending Karim Benzema from criticism from ex-England international Gary Lineker.

Former Barcelona striker Lineker tweeted during Madrid's 1-1 Champions League draw with Tottenham last week that Benzema was "overrated" and "rescued" by teammate Cristiano Ronaldo's goal-scoring feats.

That led to indignation in the Spanish capital, with Zidane calling the comments coming from someone within the...

Diego Godin honoured to equal Atletico non-Spanish appearance record

Diego Godin has made 314 appearances for Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid centre-back Diego Godin says he is "proud" to have written himself into the club's history books after joining former teammate Luis Perea as the non-Spaniard with the most appearances for the Rojiblancos.

Marco Asensio's team-leading third La Liga goal of the season sparked Real Madrid's 3-0 victory over Eibar.

Eibar left-back Jose Angel has criticised Casemiro's "tough-guy attitude," saying the Real Madrid midfielder's behaviour at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday was "awful."

Play continued, with Ceballos getting back to his feet and resuming action, but when the ball finally went out of play...

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo deserves FIFA Best award - Zidane

Marco Asensio's team-leading third La Liga goal of the season sparked Real Madrid's 3-0 victory over Eibar.
Despite scoring three goals and keeping a clean sheet, Zinedine Zidane admits Real Madrid weren't at their best against Eibar.
Cristiano Ronaldo spurned a handful of opportunities, but Marco Asensio and Marcelo were on hand to lead Real Madrid past Eibar.
Cristiano Ronaldo spurned a handful of opportunities, but Marco Asensio and Marcelo were on hand to lead Real Madrid past Eibar.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said that Cristiano Ronaldo deserved to retain The Best FIFA men's player award on Monday evening in London, speaking after another personally frustrating domestic showing for the Portuguese in Sunday evening's 3-0 La Liga victory at home to Eibar at the Bernabeu.

Madrid eased to victory over an out of form Eibar, helped on their way by Paulo Oliveira's 18th-minute own goal, which was soon followed by a clever Marco Asensio finish past unsighted goalkeeper Marko...
