Karim Benzema not on par with Real Madrid’s legend

By db-admin – Karim Benzema, French striker, continues to prove that he is not finished. Currently, the striker is equalizing the goals scored by Raul Gonzalez, the legend of Real Madrid.

After recovering from injury, Karim Benzema has contined to become a mainstay of Real Madrid’s front line. Carlo Ancelotti put Benzema as the spearhead when Real Madrid visited Athletic Bilbao headquarters.

Benzema was flanked by two agile players belonging to Madrid, Vinicius Junior and Marceo Asensio. Meanwhile, Federico Valverde became the motor of attack from the second line.

Benzema repaid Ancelotti’s trust with the goal he scored in the 24th minute. With a high scoring instinct, Benzema’s volley tore into the nets of the host’s goal.

The additional one goal made Benzema now level with Raul Gonzalez. Both of them scored 228 goals for Madrid in LaLiga.

Raul and Benzema only lost to Cristiano Ronaldo as Madrid’s top scorer in LaLiga. CR7 scored 311 goals while strengthening Los Merengues.

Meanwhile, the match ended in a 2-0 win for Madrid. Another goal was created by Toni Kroos ahead of the end of the match.

An additional three points is an important capital in Madrid’s efforts to defend the title as previously Barcelona also won the match. Now, the two teams are still three points away where Barcelona are superior.
