After the victory of yesterday against Sporting Gijón, some Real Madrid players had received some critics with the poor performance they showed. Los Blancos could win against a team that is in the low part of the table, but we saw a really poor match of Zidane’s players. The defense wasn’t good, the midfield didn’t control the match when it was necessary and the strikers did not had their day, highlighting Benzema that almost did not participate in the game. Los Blancos will play El Clásico next week end and that must improve if they want to have a good result at Camp Nou.
Yesterday one of the most criticized by Real Madrid supporters was Karim Benzema. They whistled him insistently, not something punctual and anecdotal. Los Blancos supporters criticized him despite he scored the goal that gave the victory in Champions League match. Karim Benzema didn’t play good yesterday and his level is lower than the one he showed last year.
The French strikes is having one of his worst seasons since he arrived Real Madrid. Despite being one of Zidane’s key player, Benzema adds only six goals in the 16 matches he has played so far. If we compare him with Morata, the Spanish striker has scored eight goals in the 17 matches he played. Morata that is in these moment injured has not had the importance expected when he arrived in summer. We can see that now a days, the best Real Madrid striker is Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, the great debate Real Madrid’s fans have is who should be the center-forward on Zidane’s line up, the best scorer currently the French Manager has in his squad is Cristiano Ronaldo. Although Cristiano prefers playing in the left wing, when the Portuguese star has played as the striker and with Gareth Bale and Lucas as wingers, Real Madrid had made really good performances. Who should be the striker in Real Madrid? Benzema, Morata or Cristiano?
