Morata or Benzema?

Morata or Benzema?


Zinedine Zidane has now a very difficult decision to make. It´s a good decision for the interest of Real Madrid because it´s about the incredible strikers Benzema and Morata and who should play in this season.

Since “Chicharito” Hernández left Real Madrid, Karim Benzema didn’t have any competitor in his position. Benzema answered good and he scored many goals in the last years. For example; last season the French killer scored 24 goal in league and 4 in the Campions League. He almost scored 30 goals and Florentino decided that Morata should return to the capital of Spain.

Morata left Real Madrid with the aim of growing as a football player. He went to a very difficult league like Serie A and to a big team like Juventus of Torino. Real Madrid sold him by an amount of €30M, with the option of signing him again for €20M. Morata stayed two years in Italy. The first year he scored 8 goals in league, 2 in the Italian Cup and 5 in Champions League. The second year in Torino, the Spaniard striker scored 7 goals in league, 3 in Italian Cup and 2 goals in Champions League.

Morata went to the Eurocup of France. He played the tournament in the starting 11 and scored 3 goals. He played a very good tournament but Spain was knocked out against Italy in the quarter finals. With these statistics Florentino was forced to sign again the youngster striker.

With the injury of Benzema in the beginning of this season, Morata had a perfect chance to show all Real Madrid supporters that he can play here and score many goals. Yesterday he scored his first goal in league with his team of a lifetime. Now comes the debate of who has to be the striker of Real Madrid. They are different type of striker but both can help Los Blancos win titles at the end of the year.


  1. Both should get opportunities and based on their performances in first few matches, Zidane will have an answer that who should start amd who should be a sub.. Halamadrid

  2. Its a great situation. Madrid are in every competition and they need both throughout the long season. Benzema’s class and calmness will and right place right time football is a huge play for the club. Morata has shown the ability to attack the line and is only getting better. Great situation! In Zizou we trust.

  3. morata is not the kind of player a team like realmadrid should reply on as a striker or depend on for goals.. the kid is no fit for real he still needs more experience. Benzema needs a strong competitor I think ziden should bring in Aubamayang

  4. No comments!.i think the statistics are there to judge..
    Benzema is more experienced and scored more goals than morata though he is injury prone..
    morata only has the advantage of being younger and fights better defensively….
    So BENZENA should start and MORATA on the bench…

    but zezu had it all
