Karim Benzema he has regained his best form. The Frenchman stepped forward from the march of Cristiano Ronaldo and already during last season, when the merengue team won the title of The league, proved to be the offensive benchmark of the squad. A role that did not change at all at the beginning of this season and that, however, was modified by physical problems.
The French striker has been one more on the Real Madrid injured list. Luckily for him and for Zidane, with few games lost due to physical problems. But those absences have occurred, the last against Valladolid and Real Sociedad. After those two lost duels in the League, the attacker came back in style and promoted Real Madrid: three games, four goals, a quarter pass in the Champions League and a lot of life in La Liga.
Benzema, with these targets, already accumulates 21 goals in 31 games played throughout the campaign. The Frenchman sees the goal once every 126 minutes on the pitch, which is a great average considering his deployment over the entire pitch. In the Champions League, without going any further, he has scored five of those goals and in only six games played. And analyzing his season it is evident: when Benzema finds his streak, he extends it.
His first injury came in November and, before leaving, he had scored three goals in two games. He arrived and was left unmarked for two games, but when he uncovered his scoring source again he scored four goals in three appointments. Again, before this latest injury, he had scored in the previous two games. And, once recovered, he has done it again: three goals in two games – one more if the confrontation against him is taken into account. Atalanta-.
That average of 126, the fact of having led Real Madrid as the only Spanish team in the Champions League quarterfinals, or staying alive in the two main competitions, has not been enough to overturn Deschamps’ veto.
Improve the culés
The French coach will not change his mind and until he leaves the national team bench, Benzema will not play for the national team again. And, in chaos of what Deschamps leave the post, the Real Madrid forward has not assured that he will accept a call. But, what is evident, is that France loses without what many consider the best ‘9’ of the moment.
“I can not forget it. When it’s something about my choices as a coach, the tactics or the technical aspect, it has a place of being and it doesn’t matter to me. The other is out of line, affects my name and my family, “the technician explained.
On the contrary, Deschamps has called the Barcelona players Dembélé and Griezmann. Both are without Champions and, in addition, in terms of scorers they have a worse ratio than Benzema (270 ‘and 226’ respectively). Other forwards called up as Martial they stay on one goal every 333 minutes, Eat add 321 ‘and Ben Yedder 158’. Only Giroud and Mbappé, whose positioning in their teams is very different, improve him. France loses and Real Madrid, meanwhile, seems to be winning with their striker.
