Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane's injury frustrations intensified on Tuesday, but he was pleased his squad responded well to the ongoing crisis with a 2-0 win against Getafe.
The victory moved Real Madrid five points behindAtletico Madrid, though Los Blancos have played two more matches than La Liga's frontrunner.
“Yes, we planned to take Vinicius off,"Zidane told reporters."But then Marvin Park hurt himself and we changed our plans.
“Today we did this because we had to adapt to the situation with lots of absences. We interpreted the match very well and I’m happy for the players, because that’s not easy. We were really good, especially defensively.
"I don't think there are Madridistas who think we can't win the league. It's the opposite, they always think we can change things, that's what we'll try to do.
"With difficulties of course, but we'll keep going, believing in what we do. There's a lot ahead of us."
Added Benzema:"This win gives us a lot of confidence, I think we are on our way back to our best."
