The Portuguese player took advantage of a perfect assist from Benzema to make it 0-2 at El Madrigal.
Cristiano Ronaldo always scores at El Madrigal and today was no exception. It was the 39th minute when James controlled the ball in his own half, spotted Benzema making his run down the right and launched the counter-attack with a perfect pass to the Frenchman. Benzema moved into the area, got away from Víctor Ruiz and provided the assist for the Portuguese striker, who made it 0-2. It was the top-scorer's tenth Liga goal in just six matchdays.
