At 34, Karim Benzema is still on another planet. Become the natural offensive leader of Real Madrid since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018, the French international (94 caps, 36 goals) displays a resplendent state of form. After his return to the France team just before Euro 2020, the Merengue did not experience the best European Championship of his career, but he was one of the very rare Blues not to be affected by the wave of criticism which followed the elimination of the Blues (he scored 4 achievements).

Fourth in the last Ballon d’Or, Benzema did not slow down. Top scorer in his club and in the Spanish league (17 goals scored in 20 matches), the former Gone played in the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup yesterday against FC Barcelona. And guess what, Benzema feasted again.

Even Xavi came to congratulate him

Always concerned by defensive retreats, he was behind the opening scoring for Vinicius Junior, before scoring Madrid’s second goal of the evening. He could even have been a decisive double passer for Rodrygo at the very end of the match. Permanent danger to the Blaugrana defense, the Frenchman has once again been praised by the Spanish press.

But that’s not all. Acclaimed by the public in Riyadh (the match took place in Saudi Arabia), the Madrilenian was even entitled, according to AS, to the congratulations of a Xavi yet not known to carry the Merengues in his heart. The mark of the grown-ups.
