Having heard his team-mate jeered earlier in the contest, the Portugal worldwide then selflessly let Benzema convert an 89th-minute penalty after Victor Laguardia brought down a marauding Bale. Benzema set up both Ronaldo's opener and a quick second goal by Bale to put the result beyond doubt seconds after halftime.

Cristiano Ronaldo struck twice as Real Madrid thrashed Alaves 4-0 but selflessly gave up the chance for a hat-trick by handing over penalty duties to under-fire teammate Karim Benzema.

He was handed just 29 seconds of a 3-1 victory over Leganes in midweek, with the Spain U21 worldwide reported to have been left less than impressed by a pointless late run out.

Benzema proved a more effective provider in the hosts' next attack of note, skipping around Alexis and crossing for Bale to send a spectacular overhead kick just wide.

The victory means Zinedine Zidane's defending champions have now accumulated 18 points from their last seven league games - during which they have scored 30 goals - to turn the heat up on second-placed Atletico Madrid.

Benzema converted a penalty in the 89th after Bale was fouled by Victor Larguardia in the area.

But Zinedine Zidane has insisted the Wales international'will always be important to the club

"Bale has done very well, he has played 90 minutes in a position that he hasn't been in lately".

Besides scoring and generating a penalty, the Wales worldwide went close to a second goal in the 54th when he curled a long strike that grazed the top of the bar. He's focused and I want to see him back at 100%. Then when we had the ball he had to move and not stay on the left and he did that well. After the game he played, Karim just needed to score a goal.

He said: "The gesture of Cristiano is very important".

"He (Ronaldo) had opportunities, he scored twice".

Injured trio Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Marcelo will definitely miss out and Zidane was keen to smooth out differences with midfielder Dani Ceballos, who was visibly irritated at being sent on in the final minute at Leganes. Now we are third, we need to keep going until we get second and on until the end, added Zidane, who nevertheless has considerable selection issues. It beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie last week.
