At the end of the meeting, the savior returned to his double, including his last sensational goal. The French striker gave the keys to the end of the season for the Madrid club.
The great afternoon of Karim Benzema
Cristiano Ronaldo‘s departure from Juventus Turin has reshuffled the cards in Real Madrid’s attack. Indeed, already essential during the many successes of the club from the Spanish capital during the presence of the five-time Portuguese Ballon d’Or in the Madrid jersey, Karim Benzema has taken on a new dimension since the transfer of his ex-accomplice. Having led his team to the coronation in La Liga last season, the Lyonnais has another very good season. The French attacking player has stacked 20 goals and five assists in all competitions. Absent in the knockout stages of the Champions League against Atalanta Bergamo, the Bron native came back in force against Atletico de Madrid, saving his teammates from defeat by crucifying Jan Oblak at the very end of the match.
Zinedine Zidane‘s vice-squad captain handed it over yesterday afternoon. Led by Elche half an hour from the end, Real relied on Benzema. The former Lyonnais player offered himself a double, including a fabulous volley, giving the victory to his team at the very end of the match. Asked about this masterpiece, KB9 admitted to being quite satisfied with his performance and his saving feat: “It’s a great goal that helps the team and it’s important. It’s a nice goal which gives us three points. I am very happy. “
Benzema analyzes Real Madrid matches
More focused on collective success than on his personal performance, the former Olympique Lyonnais scorer also returned to his team’s meetings. He deciphered the sometimes disappointing performances of the Merengues, like that of yesterday: “Every time we play first (in the weekend), we know that we have to give more to reach the top places. The teams are strong, they get behind. The first half was a little weird, there was little movement and we defended a bit by stepping back. In the second half, with more desire, we scored the winning goals “.
A perfect analysis and performance which confirms that Real Madrid‘s attacking leader’s costume is tailor-made for Karim Benzema.
