Real Madrid: a triple decisive Sunday for Karim Benzema

Zapping Our Mondial EXCLUDED: The “Little Brother” interview with Matteo Guendouzi!

FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will cross swords today at 4:15 p.m. in the traditional Clasico, which the entire football world is waiting for. If this match is obviously always apart, it is perhaps even more so today for a man. This man is Karim Benzema. We explain why.

Officially taking over from CR7!

Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer of 2018, Karim Benzema has officially become the attacking leader of the Merengue. The latter explained it recently: if he loved playing with the Portuguese, he admitted that he played a lot for him and that this departure had somehow freed him. What could be better than a successful performance today to finally and definitively turn the page of the five-fold Golden Ball, whose shadow still hangs over Madrid.

Make people forget the sextape affair

This week, the prosecution requested a six-month suspended prison sentence against the Nueve in the sextape case trial. A case that has resurfaced and which has followed the captain of Real Madrid for more than five years now, which cost him his place in the France team for a long time. This Clasico, if it results in another great performance, could once again eclipse this dark chapter in the life of the former Lyonnais.

The Golden Ball

This is perhaps the strongest argument of the day. Indeed, the votes for the Ballon d’Or end this evening. The native of Lyon knows it: there are matches that can tip the scales. And inevitably, the one that is most anticipated in the world is perhaps the one where it is necessary to be the most decisive. The French international could clearly encourage some voters to change their minds at the last moment in the event of an XXL performance on the lawn of Camp Nou this afternoon. Anyway, all these reasons to tell you that “KB9” may be more motivated than ever for this Clasico.

to summarize

While FC Barcelona receives Real Madrid this afternoon at 4:15 p.m., this Clasico, if it is obviously eagerly awaited like every year, may be more important than ever for Karim Benzema. We explain why.
