If FC Barcelona has recruited in abundance this summer, this start of LaLiga 2022-2023 keeps its eyes on the great attraction of the championship: Karim Benzema. With the mission of winning the Ballon d’Or this season, the Real Madrid center forward does not slow down in this calendar year and shows that pushing back the peak of his art in each game is the most sovereign show of force that exists.
Carlo Ancelotti may have won four Champions Leagues, La Liga, Bundesliga, Premier League, Ligue 1 and Serie A, but the 63-year-old tactician still has an appetite. Proof of this is Real Madrid’s victory against Eintracht Frankfurt in the European Super Cup (2-0), which allowed White House to join FC Barcelona and AC Milan in the number of trophies won in the competition (5). When reporting the match, Transalpina was logically asked about the new XXL performance of Karim Benzema, scorer of his team’s second goal. ” If we are here it is thanks to us but above all thanks to him, he scored many goalsAnalyze Don Carlo. He is a very important player, a leader. He finished the season well and now he’s going straight to the Ballon d’Or. Is there still a question? for me no more…And for LaLiga? Even less.
So that his name appears a little better in the golden pages of Real, Benzema marked his 324me goal in 606 games with the shirt Meringue . It is one more goal than the legend Raúl González Blanco (323 in 741 games), and places the 9 madridista in second place in the ranking of the club’s top scorers, behind the untouchable Cristiano Ronaldo (450 goals). On the eve of his fourteenth season at what many describe as the biggest club in the world, Benzema is not content to play the role of big brother to the new generation. He is a captain, a slab of reinforced concrete on which his teammates lean, a complete and essential footballer. Without his presence on the pitch, the Real is capable of sinking as in the last classic at the Santiago-Bernabéu, where Xavi’s Barça had dictated their law (0-4).
For La Benz, the balance of the last season in LaLiga speaks for itself. Thirty-two games, twenty-seven goals including six braces and a hat-trick, twelve assists. Just as showy is that of C1, with the status of top scorer in the competition and fifteen achievements on the clock. For the most assiduous of the Spanish championship, the analysis is clear: Karim Benzema at Real Madrid has become as vital to his team as Leo Messi was during his great years at FC Barcelona. It is no coincidence that last season Benzema won the trophy top scorer (LaLiga top scorer award) for the first time in his career at… 34 years old! Since the 2009-2010 season, only Luis Suárez had managed to win the distinction in the middle of the distance duel between CR7 and Messi. Now that the two aliens have gone to other skies, KB9 has made LaLiga his exclusive property and the interested party does not intend to give up even a millimeter of his domain in 2022.
Lewandowski, new sheriff in town?
This yes, the Barça does not hear it thus at all. In this, the hiring of Robert Lewandowski should allow the Catalans to respond quickly to the recital offered by Benzema since Messi left the country. With this titanic Benzema-Lewandowski duel, the classicHe recovers his credentials and prepares to once again become the inescapable world poster against Manchester City-Liverpool, which increasingly occupies more space in the media landscape. If Haaland and Nunez probably represent the foot of tomorrow, they have yet to write their own history by winning major trophies. For his part, Benzema already weighs five Champions, four European Super Cups, four Spanish championships and four French championships, not to mention a 2022 Ballon d’Or that can no longer escape him given his excellent service record. “In Spain it is difficult to give due respect to the legends of your clubexplained former goalkeeper Santiago Cañizares in an interview published on our site in 2016.If you win and you leave, you will have a nice farewell, because people are happy and grateful. We have a culture of the moment. The past or the future, no one thinks about it. We live permanently in the present. What happened yesterday is quickly forgotten, what happens tomorrow will be tomorrow.On Sunday in Almería, Benzema will be willing to continue writing his glorious future… until the World Cup final in Qatar?
