Dani Carvajal backs sacked Julen Lopetegui as best coach he's ever had

"Today the players showed their quality - we saw some really attractive goals today".

With two games remaining in Group G reigning champions Real are joint top on nine points with AS Roma who beat CSKA Moscow 2-1.

It was a landmark night for Benzema, whose first goal was his 200th for the club.

Casemiro doubled the lead three minutes later when the Brazilian outjumped his marker and headed home from a corner.

Casemiro guided a simple second into the corner of the net after being left totally unmarked from a corner, before Benzema helped himself to another in nearly identical circumstances, this time once picked out by Gareth Bale's headed pass four yards out.

Madrid were dominate throughout and Toni Kroos added an impressive fifth after the interval when he chipped goalkeeper from inside the area.

"We are facing up with Solari as coach of Madrid", Casemiro said.

But any hopes Plzen harboured of a shock win were wiped out with two quickfire goals in the 21st and 23rd minutes.

The hosts were more lively after the break and managed a few shots on goal but could not find the quality they needed in the final third to chip away at Real's lead.

Former Real midfielder Solari took over from the sacked Julen Lopetegui as interim coach on October 29, and has now seen his side score 11 times without reply following wins over Melilla and Real Valladolid.

DF Sergio Ramos, 5 - Very fortunate not to be sent off at 0-0 after he drew blood from the nose of Plzen's Milan Havel with his elbow, which is not the type of leadership Madrid need at the moment.
