Cristiano Ronaldo was selfless in the 4-0 win over Alaves, allowing Benzema convert a late penalty.
The Portuguese was on track for a hat trick, but gave Benzema, who had been struggling in front of goal an opportunity to get on the score sheet.
Prior to the penalty goal, Benzema had only scored three goals, and Ronaldo’s act does not surprise Navas.
“Cristiano’s gesture speaks volumes for the type of team this is and how he is as a person,” goalkeeper Navas said post-match.
“We’re all pulling in the same direction and we have to show our unity more than ever.
“We’re thrilled with Karim’s goal, as team-mates, we have to stick together. We’re always going to fight for each other and while there is a lot of talk about Karim at the moment, we have to support one another.”
