He played all 90-plus minutes on Wednesday in the 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
"We knew we were under pressure at 2-1 and had to turn the game around, but we did and again this will help us gain confidence".
Ronaldo scored the 4 goal for his side, which proved to be the victor on the night; he looked lively all night in an enthralling where Madrid desperately needed to win.
"We took advantage of the break to talk in the dressing room and correct some things", he said, as reported by Goal.
Asensio duly headed Madrid into an 11th-minute lead after Antonio Adan had saved a Ronaldo shot, but Betis had won when the sides last met at the Santiago Bernabeu and they hit back brilliantly. They controlled the last half an hour of the game.
"Betis are a very good side and are very strong on their own patch".
Dani Carvajal, Mateo Kovacic, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio are also recalled, the latter having shined off the bench with a hand in both of Madrid's late goals to down PSG. "But I'm happy in the end, and I prefer to focus on the five goals we scored rather than the three we let in".
Ronaldo now has 10 goals in his last six games in all competitions, following a dip in form earlier in the season.
Despite all this, Zidane continues to overlook Asensio when picking his line-up for Los Merengues' crunch fixtures. But I will say that I take it day by day.
In the centre of the park, defensive midfielder Casemiro should partner up with Luka Modric, who is often the beating heart of this Madrid side.
The 22-year-old is frustrated with his bit-part role in Zinedine Zidane's team and has warned the Spanish giants he has a host of offers and will consider them if his situation doesn't not change.
