With a Super Cup win and two league victories to their name, Real Madrid have coped OK so far this season without Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo who have both been absent from the opening few weeks of action whilst recovering from summer injuries.

Nevertheless, given their undoubted quality, the sooner Zinedine Zidane can call upon the two members of Los Blancos' famous 'BBC' forward line the better as Madrid look to compete on multiple fronts this season.

And fans of the La Liga giants were given a glimpse of what is to come when the duo are back in the starting line up today after a video emerged of a classy goal during Real Madrid's Thursday training session.

Both stars have been named by Zidane in Real's squad for this weekend's fixture against Osasuna after recovering from knee and hip problems, respectively.

Judging by the customary skill and cross from Ronaldo and flexible finish from Benzema in the video below, it looks like neither of them are suffering from too much rust after their injury layoffs.

We're not sure what is more impressive - Ronaldo's ability to control a long-range pass from Pepe and turn it into a perfectly weighted pass in the same move, or the power Benzema was able to generate with his awkward volley.

Either way, it won't be pleasant viewing for Osasuna as they prepare for tomorrow's fixture.


Already bracing themselves with having to deal with the likes of Gareth Bale and Alvaro Morata, the prospect of adding Ronaldo and Benzema to the mix will be giving the La Liga club nightmares.

For Madrid fans, though, the video will make exciting viewing as Zidane and co. look to build on an impressive start to the season.

Even without two-thirds of 'BBC', the reigning Champions League holders have racked up eight goals in their opening three games - including a 3-2 win over Sevilla in the Super Cup.

If Ronaldo and Benzema can take their training ground talents to the field tomorrow, who knows how much their goal difference will improve by by the end of the weekend.
