Karim Benzema is still shining in La Liga. He is the dominating striker of La Liga and he wants to play more, score more and break the records.


Breaking the cycle of records from Karim

A few seconds before the break Rodrygo causes a penalty in a lightning play.  Benzema does not think so. He sets his sights on the ball, and doesn’t divert it from him until he puts it on the penalty spot and sends it into the net. He had already scored the second for Madrid, also from a penalty (which he himself had caused), but he did not notice the possibility of leaving the shot to Rodrygo. The current Ballon d’Or who still feels the need to vindicate himself, more because of his age (35 years) and the uncertainty of whether Madrid is going to sign another nine than to prove his worth, something beyond any doubt.


Two goals in last round of La Liga

His double in the placid match against Elche was noted, not only for his fight with Lewandowski, but because with him he surpassed the 228 goals scored in the League by another Madrid legend, Raúl, and he is now only four behind Hugo Sánchez. When he surpasses the Mexican, he will only have Cristiano, Messi and Zarra ahead of him. Benzema is already a living history of Spanish football… but even so now he does not escape the debate that arises as to whether Madrid needs a bridge striker from next season until Mbappé or Haaland comes along. That’s why he didn’t let Rodrygo take the penalty. It is the tyranny of Benzema.
