Eden Hazard scored his first goal for Real Madrid in over a year and Karim Benzema struck twice, as the Spanish champions coasted to a 4-1 win at home to Huesca in La Liga on Saturday (Oct 31).

Head coach Zidane did not feel there was much to glean from Hazard's reaction, though.

Zidane was full of praise for Hazard's performance as he told reporters after the match: "I'm happy with his game".

Huesca's David Ferreiro then managed to cut the deficit in the 74th minute. You could see the quality that he has linking up with other players.

It has also been a hard start to the campaign for Lionel Messi too, as he has now gone 877 minutes without scoring in open play.

Barca fired 25 shots at goal but only managed to beat Alaves' brilliant goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco once, when Antoine Griezmann netted early in the second half nearly immediately after Jota had been sent off for the hosts.

"He's okay, he has no problems, [he is] happy. We scored four and that's great for us".

Despite their opponents playing the last half an hour with 10 men, Lionel Messi and co. were unable to secure all three points at Mendizorroza.

The win took Madrid back to the top of La Liga on 16 points after seven games although Real Sociedad can go above them if they beat Celta Vigo on Sunday. "Scoring four goals is satisfying", he added. "Our performance wasn't flawless, but we scored four goals", he said.

The Dutchman added: "Of course I'm anxious that we've only got two points from the last 12".

"We are missing a lot of chances, me more than anyone, but it's still early in the season and I know we're going to get better".
