Real Madrid thrashed Espanyol 4-2 on Sunday evening thanks to a brace from Karim Benzema, a Sergio Ramos header and a Gareth Bale goal from the bench.


Benzema was happy with his all round display in the Madrid triumph on Sunday night as he scored the opener within 187 seconds - Madrid's quickest goal of the season.


However, following the win, the 31-year-old said he’s “a No.9 who has the soul of a No.10."

"I don't know if this was my best match of the season," he said after the match as Marca quoted.

"Each match I want to do more and make nice things happen in the play, while also scoring goals, giving assists and doing a bit of everything.


"People ask a striker to score goals, but I think I am a No.9 who has the soul of a No.10."


Benzema is now the top scorer for Real Madrid this season (with 15 goals).
