A late double from Benzema earns Real Madrid a 2-1 comeback win at home to Elche.

 Calvo powered in a header off the underside of the crossbar to give the visitors the lead, but Zidane immediately introduced Kroos and Modric and the change in personnel and tactics paid off. 

Modric set up Benzema for a headed equaliser and the Frenchman scored a sublime second in added time This victory moves Madrid within five points of leaders Atletico Madrid, who play their game in hand against Getafe later on Saturday.

 Next up for Zidane's men is a Champions League last-16 second leg with Atalanta on Tuesday, while Elche - still one point above the relegation zone  travel to Sevilla on Wednesday.
