Alvaro Arbeloa has taken the time to praise Karim Benzema in the wake of Real Madrid's 5-1 win over Athletic Bilbao at the weekend.

The France international was directly involved in three of Madrid's five goals, and caused the Athletic defence all kinds of trouble with his impressive performance.

"You have to give him credit for a 10 out of 10 game. Benzema is out of this world, a very classy and talented footballer," Arbeloa was quoted as saying by Marca.

"He had a really good game in which he played spectacularly and took advantage of goalscoring opportunities.

"He's a great striker who's getting his form back and who you have to acknowledge does extraordinary things."

Benzema has netted two goals in 10 La Liga appearances this term.
