Benzema was jeered off against Al Jazira after he squandered several chances, his replacement Gareth Bale going on to score Madrid's victor in a 2-1 victory with his first touch, but Zidane made it clear he would stand by his fellow Frenchman.

Cristiano Ronaldo and substitute Gareth Bale struck later to claim victory for Real and keep alive their chances of a second successive Club World Cup crown.

And in the 81st minute, Gareth Bale scored the victor to send Madrid into the final where they will meet Brazilian side Gremio on Saturday.

A stunning performance saw the Pride of Abu Dhabi lead the UEFA Champions League champions 1-0 at half-time, in a display that will have won them fans the world over.

Los Blancos ended up winning the Club World Cup semi-final 2-1.

The Spanish side dominated the game but, not for the first time this season, showed remarkable profligacy in front of goal until Cristiano Ronaldo equalized in the second half and Gareth Bale hit a late victor 30 seconds after coming off the bench. Words can not express how happy we are as fans to see our team play Real Madrid.

The Portugal superstar was then in the thick of the action again, just failing to get a touch on a shot from Gareth Bale that crept home to put Madrid in front.

Ronaldo's goal did not only save Real from a major shock but took him past Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, as well as Rosario's Cesar Delgado who are all on five.

"I don't know the Brazilian league well but I watched their semi-final and they are a good team and we will have to lift our standard of play against them", Zidane said after the nervy win on Wednesday.
