Bale has 11 goals from 21 La Liga appearances this season, while Benzema has just five strikes from 26 outings.

"No I don't think so, this is football", Zidane said on Tuesday.

"Karim is never going to throw in the towel". "He has to score goals of course, he knows that - he knows he can do other things but he has to score goals. It's been a tough year for him in this regard".

Real Madrid booked their place in the last four alongside AS Roma and Bayern Munich thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's last-gap penalty.

The 25-year-old scored a stupendous brace during the astonishing 3-2 comeback win over Manchester City earlier this month, and the midfielder needs to find the balance between attack and defence in order to truly transform into the club's go-to man.

Alisson's performances in Europe have been especially impressive throughout this season as the Brazilian number 1 is yet to concede a goal at the Stadio Olimpico in the Champions League this season against the likes of Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Qarabag, Shakhtar Donetsk and Barcelona. It's his home and he had a great game.

"We have no intention of selling him", Pallotta told Sky Sport Italia.

"This is where he grew up and he deserved that kind of reception".

Real Madrid could get long-term target David De Gea from Manchester United, if and only if they agree to this swap deal according to reports.

Craig Bellamy believes Real Madrid are the only team that can stop Liverpool FC in the Champions League.
