Frenchman wants no more slip ups in league run-in
However, the French international, who bagged a brace on Saturday night, stressed the importance of each match left in La Liga.
''There is plenty of the championship to play for and we seek to win all our remaining games. The gap for now is only four points and I really hope Barcelona lose to Sevilla tomorrow,'' the striker told Canal Plus after the game.
''I'm lucky because I'm scoring almost two goals a game thanks to my team-mates,'' added the 23 year-old.
However, straight after his brace against the relegation threatened side, he quickly turned his mind to the game against Lyon on Wednesday.
''We are 90 minutes away from the quarter-finals and hopefully we'll win.," he added.
This was the third game in a row that Benzema has netted a double, bringing his season tally up to 14 goals in all competitions despite playing second fiddle to Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo for a large portion of the season.
