VIGO, Spain (Reuters) - Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema twice combined with team mate Toni Kroos to continue his insatiable scoring run as his side earned a 3-1 win away to Celta Vigo on Saturday to move to within three points of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid.

Kroos was again involved for the second goal arriving on the half-hour mark, winning the ball back on the edge of the box and allowing Benzema to dribble across the box and score his eighth goal in six matches in all competitions.Santi Mina headed Celta back into the game in the 40th minute following a free kick and the hosts improved in the second half while Real ran out of steam.
