The Frenchman tries to be in the Clasico based on his desire, hard work and the images of the last match.
Risking Karim Benzema in the line-up
The normal thing would be that he does not risk, but”. That is the message that slips from inside the Madrid locker room regarding Benzema, without wanting to quantify in any way the options he has to be in the Clásico . In the coaching staff they account with concern. Only 16 days separate the match against Barça from the first leg of the quarter-finals against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. However, the player still harbors hopes of being able to participate against Barcelona. It will be doubtful until the last minute.
Tests carried on Karim Benzema
The tests carried out on Benzema yesterday have caused some optimism in the striker. The MRI images show a clear improvement in the area, something normal, on the other hand, since he has only worked at low intensity since he was injured last Monday (almost five days ago) against Mallorca. Benzema is not giving up, and he has told his closest friends so. He is going to try. “He has the same chances of playing as not doing it”, they say from his environment. To speak of the importance of Benzema in the current Real Madrid is to speak of the obvious. Beyond the 32 goals he has scored in 35 games played this season (22 in 25 in the League), the Frenchman forms, together with Vinicius, the couple that has the most impact on the game of all those who participate in big teams Suspenders. According to the data provided, the Artificial Intelligence platform applied to sport, both are capable of generating a goal every 73 minutes when they are together on the field. After them, Lewandowski and Gnabry do it every 89. The logarithms used by Olocip manage to calculate the value of all the actions of each player based on whether the possibility of their team scoring or conceding a goal increases or decreases.In this sense, Dembelé and Aubameyang, at Barça, are capable of generating a goal on the field every 52 minutes. But the fact that they have only acted together for 261 minutes (for the 1,822 of the Benzema-Vinicius couple) distorts, for the moment, their assessment.
