Real Madrid striker Benzema 'thrilled and very proud' after victory over Barcelona

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema admits he enjoyed their Supercopa de Espana semifinal triumph against Barcelona.

The 3-2 win was earned in extra-time, with Benzema getting on the scoresheet.

He later said: “I’m thrilled and feel very proud. The fans were great. They give me more confidence and the strength to do what I do on the pitch and I’d like to thank all the fans here for that.

“I don’t know if Madrid is the best team in Europe. But what I can tell you is that Madrid is the best club in the world. But we have to win trophies to be at the top.

“I don’t know if it was the greatest (El Clasico), but it was one of the tensest because it went right until the end. It was a really important game because Barcelona are tough opponents who take control of the ball, but there are loads of Clásicos and this one was great because now we’re in the final, but I don’t know if it was the greatest.”
