The French striker has caused his team a very strong dependence.
Without him, where would Real Madrid be? We can ask ourselves the question so much Karim Benzema exerts a very important influence in the results of his team. Saturday evening at Alaves (1-4), with a new double registered this season, the 33-year-old has confirmed his status as an attacking boss at Real, like that of Christiano Ronaldo before his departure for Juventus in 2018.
Benzema scored 15 goals in all competitions (ten in the Championship, four in the Champions League and one in the Copa del Rey), out of the 47 in the current season. second in La Liga standings. Which represents 32%, insists Marca. The Spanish media insists above all on the fact that behind Karim Benzema, offensive alternatives do not exist.
