It always seemed to me that it was better to be Benzema than Lewandowski because you know how to do more things, and you are more complete.
Benzema – The player of the season
Karim Benzema has been the player of the season because he contributed goals, assists, and outstanding football to the 34th Real Madrid title, which is discussed only by those who, a decade later, still insists that he has never been Robert Lewandowski. It always seemed to me that it was better to be Benzema than Lewandowski because you know how to do more things, and you are more complete. It is one thing and another – considering that at the start of Sunday with two fewer goals, Karim had a chance to win the Pichichi Trophy ahead of a competitive monster like Leo Messi. Leo cannot independently lift a team like Quique Setien’s current Barcelona side on his own, but the task for him is not that he can do it or surpass.
Messi reached the height independently
The fact is that he does not even leave breadcrumbs. If he had any doubts, he brushed them aside on Sunday with two more goals. Seven Pichichis in the same era of Cristiano Ronaldo. Barcelona did not reach the heights, but Messi did. Although he never played, Messi appeared an hour before Leganes gave one of the two guards of honor. The other came from Villarreal and Eibar players for the two football legends who are – Santi Cazorla and Bruno Soriano, who said goodbye without a trophy, but with respect and admiration for team-mates and rivals. Hats off to them. Lega’s players went without tribute or reward after having performed such heroics in the last five games of the season, as they fell to the sidelines at the last moment.
They survived in their scopes until Oscar Rodriguez’s shot off target. Their final push deserved better luck, but their lack of conviction in front of goal and a controversial handball decision from VAR condemned them.
