Huge role in Zidane’s Real Madrid
Karim Benzema has a big role in Real Madrid. In modern Los Blancos, Zidane’s main strategy is to play more in-depth and help midfield. Benzema is the main striker of Zidane’s club but he never hesitates to run back in midfield and help Modric or Kroos. Karim Benzema scores important goals for Real Madrid. IN previous season when Los Merengues became Champions of La Liga, Karim was the main striker and goal-scorer for the team. He was very close to joining Lionel Messi. The Argentinian player scored a few more goals for Barcelona last season and won the personal award of top-scorer. Experts believe that bad form of Messi this season can lead Benzema to top-scorer award. Unfortunately to Real Madrid fans, Karim missed few matches in October and November. During that period, Real Madrid players found it hard to score many goals as they were missing their main striker – Benzema. Keep in mind that Benzema joined Real Madrid in 2009. In just 11 seasons, French striker became one of the biggest players of the team.
