Zinedine Zidane believes that Karim Benzema is the best striker in world football after the Frenchman's hat-trick against Athletic Bilbao. Here are three takeaways from the La Liga match.

REAL MADRID are reportedly hoping to find a loan suitor for Gareth Bale as they believe it will be impossible to strike a permanent deal for the Welsh worldwide. We kept a clean sheet, just giving up one chance with the cross to Inaki Williams. The Wales worldwide, who has had some famous moments in a Madrid shirt, notable in Champions League finals, is not in his plans and is for sale.

The Welshman's serious dip in form, coupled with a huge salary cap, makes Bale is quite a risk for any club that may come calling. "In the end, in a season in which we are not playing anything, we have to always have to be fully motivated, we have given everything and the second half things went for us more than in the first".

When quizzed on why a player who has won four Champions Leagues in five seasons in Madrid - including scoring decisive goals in two of the finals - is given such a hostile reception by fans Zidane said; "I don't know".

Want your voice heard? Benz was able to step up this season and carry the weight of the team so he genuinely doesn't deserve any less.

He said Christians must adhere to the commandments of God, while reflecting on the virtues of Christ as they celebrate the Easter. Christians sang praises, gave thanks, and even danced to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Benzema has been one of the few bright sparks in an otherwise dreary campaign for the European champions and his second-half treble at the Santiago Bernabeu took his tally to 30 goals for the season.

What the public can't understand is that, while Zidane publicly defends Bale, the club is desperately trying to find a solution regarding the player's continuity. Karim Benzema is in a good shape and scored 17 goals.

It was from the counter-attack that Madrid took the lead as Toni Kroos was allowed to stroll forward unattended and feed Marco Asensio out wide.

Hazard has undoubtedly been Chelsea's best player this season, and his 19 goals and 12 assists have earned him a nomination for PFA Player of the Year.

"I'm happy with the attitude as we played very well today".
