The Portugal international believes the former Tottenham star has adapted well to Spanish football and is thrilled with his side's attacking prowess this season

Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo has hailed his partnership with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, describing their understanding as "almost perfect."

Madrid's attacking trio - nicknamed 'BBC' - has impressed with a string of sublime performances this season, helping to fire Carlo Ancelotti's side to Copa del Rey glory and the Champions League final.

Ronaldo admits it is a pleasure to play alongside the duo, and believes Bale has adapted brilliantly to life at the club following his world-record transfer from Tottenham last summer.

"I think that Bale, Benzema and I have an almost perfect connection," Ronaldo told the official Uefa website.

"Karim and Gareth are both excellent players. I am feeling very well alongside them. Things are going well and I think that's important for the club.

"Gareth is an excellent player and he has adapted really well. He has put in some fantastic performances in the Champions League, La Liga and the Copa del Rey. He scored an excellent goal against Barcelona and has shown his quality.

"I like him a lot as a player and I like him even more now that I've come to know him personally. We talk a lot and I do anything to help him."

Bale has netted 20 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions in his first season at Madrid, including the winner in the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona.
