Real Madrid are in a very good moment and they are doing a great season so far. Los Blancos have a run of good result without loosing any match since 32 games ago. The team manage by Zinedine Zidane are in this moment in the top of the table having a good difference of six points with Barcelona that is the pursuing team. We could saw great performances of many players but there’s two, that are not having the expected importance. These players are Benzema and James Rodríguez.
Despite the injuries that have suffered Los Blancos in this season, Real Madrid are having very good results. Cristiano Ronaldo is scoring being in these moments the top scorer player of La Liga with 10 goals. With all the injuries Los Blancos have, we could also saw a great evolution in Mateo Kovacic, Lucas Vázquez and Nacho, being key players in several matches.
There are two players that must be very important in Real Madrid but they are not showing their great quality. Benzema and James are receiving many criticisms from Real Madrid supporters because of their poor performance in the last months.
Despite Benzema scored the first goal in the match against Sporting Lisbon, the French striker is not in his best moment. We saw him disappeared in El Clásico and he was substituted in the last ten minutes by Mariano. Karim Benzema is having several physical problems and his numbers this year are quite poor. He has just scored 6 goals in all the season and these numbers font’s remind the ones of last years, being one of the best player for Zidane.
James Rodríguez is having his worst season since he signed from Mónaco and he is also reviewing many criticisms from Real Madrid supporters. He did not participate in any minute in El Clásico despite Los Blancos were loosing the match. The Colombian midfielder is not having any importance in the good run of Real Madrid, and he is only playing a few minutes in a certain matches. James is a very good player but he must show it. His last match was against Cultural Leonesa in Copa del Rey where we could saw him really active despite the low level Cultural have.
