Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has acknowledged that it has been a tough year for his striker Karim Benzema.

Zidane believes that his fellow countryman will turn the page and start scoring goals. The Frenchman has netted just five league goals this campaign and was unlucky again as Real Madrid overcame Malaga 2-1 on April 15th.

Zidane insisted Benzema – who has just nine goals in all competitions – would continue working hard.

"Karim is never going to throw in the towel. Of course, he'd love to score and he's had opportunities to do so. All he was lacking was the goal, he'll keep going. It's been a tough year for him in this regard." Zidane admitted.

Superb Isco

Meanwhile, the tactician praised his midfielder Isco who scored and assisted in the second goal as he made his 100th win in charge of the UEFA Champions League defending champions.

"I'm pleased with his performance and his goal. It's his home and he had a great game. I'm thrilled for him and for the team. This is where he grew up and he deserved that kind of reception. He's been an important player for Malaga and today he's crucial for Real Madrid." Zidane said.
