Karim Benzema remains one of the great architects of Real Madrid’s consecration of the European Champions League. Author of a breathtaking season, he is closer than ever to lifting the golden ball. He is the big favorite for this personal consecration, the ceremony of which will take place next October.
Already winner of the Spanish Super Cup and La Liga with Real Madrid, Karim Benzema ended the current exercise in the most beautiful way. Indeed, he has enriched his sports record with another title, namely the European champions league. A new title won following the victory against Liverpool by the smallest of margins (1-0). Admittedly, he did not score, but he greatly contributed to the consecration of his team. With a lot of stalls and calls to free up spaces, KB9 helped his teammates and thus was able to lift the big-eared cup.
It must be said that this new coronation is well deserved for the former Lyonnais. The latter finished the prestigious European competition as top scorer with 15 goals. “These are important things in life. It’s always good to win the Champions League, even more so this year and we did. We deserve because we only played big teams. There is no chance! You can have it once but not every time. We deserve our victory, we made incredible efforts, we never gave up. We are all important. I would say that’s everyone. It’s a real group”, he declared on Canal +.
Karim without competition?
At 34, Karim Benzema has found a second youth. He is panicking the statistics this season. Top scorer in the European Champions League, he is also the “Pichichi” of the Spanish Liga with 27 goals on the clock. Better still, he has 12 assists to his credit.
In addition to the three trophies won with Real Madrid, it is completely legitimate for him to claim the Golden Ball. The way is clear for him. It is difficult to see how this reward could escape him.
“It’s always good to participate, to make my team win, to score goals. To finish top scorer is exceptional but the most important thing is to win my fifth C1. I think that in club, I cannot do better. Now we will see what will happen but I am proud of what I have achieved.
Karim Benzema is heading straight for this personal consecration. He is on track to succeed Zinedine Zidane, crowned in 1998 after in particular the victory in the World Cup with the Blues.
