Benitez is continuously being asked about his relationship with the club’s superstar and whether the Portuguese is his best ever player.

"There is one indisputable player, which is Cristiano. From there, we assess who is well and who is not," the Spaniard told reporters ahead of the game at Athletic Bilbao.

“Cristiano manages his exertions well. As of today he is pretty good physically.

"What I want is to win. I am not obsessed with Cristiano scoring five goals or Navas not conceding.

“I have never thought about favouring anyone apart from the team.

"The players know that Cristiano scores 50 goals a season. He makes the difference.”

Real will still be without team captain Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez.
