Benzema gunpowder gets wet: 9 becomes 10 again


One of the negative points of the current situation of Real Madrid is the bad moment facing Karim Benzema. The French striker, who in recent months has thrown the white team behind his back, has seen how his gunpowder has been extinguished in recent meetings, both in the League and in the Champions League.

The French striker began in an unbeatable way. In LaLiga, except for the duel in which the picture of the capital of Spain tied in Villarreal, the former Olympique de Lyon scored in 4 of the first five games of the regularity tournament.

In those first 5 games, Benzema scored 6 goals and gave a goal pass, which put him at the top of the top scorers of the National League Championship. However, in the Champions League, against PSG, infected by the bad encounter of the rest of the team, the Frenchman went to zero.

The turning point came in the match against Sevilla, on September 22, at Sánchez Pizjuan, where Real Madrid won the victory. Benzema gave the victory goal to the cadre of the capital of Spain, and that has been his penultimate goal … for the moment.

In the next match in the League, he did not play a single minute against Osasuna, at the Bernabéu. However, in a clash in which he was able to put an end to his bad streak, in the Madrid derby, against Atlético, Benzema returned to empty.

Despite having the clearest chance of the game, the French striker was not able to beat Oblak to continue his good moment face to door. After the derby, came the second match of the Champions League, this time against Bruges.

Before the Belgians, Benzema gave a goal pass, but he was not the striker to which the fans got used during 2019 and who was the leader at many times, both last season, and at the beginning of 19/20 .

In front of Granada, the French tip scored again, being one of the props of the merengue attack, breaking that drought in the face of the opposing goal. But the selection stop came.

After the international meetings, a bad time came merengue. Against Mallorca, the white box fell defeated and Benzema was left empty of gunpowder to not score a single goal to help his team.

Finally, before Galatasaray, Benzema tried again, but he remained unmarked again, being the fifth match of what we have been in season without scoring a single goal.

In 11 games he has played, all but one between the League and the Champions League, Benzema has scored 6 goals, but in the last two clashes he has not seen the door. Concern grows around the striker, who continues to fight to return to the path of goals.
