The French striker has come to Los Blancos.
Real Madrid is not in Europe. Zinedine Zidane’s Side on the Champions League Final on Tuesday for the third consecutive time, defeating an impressive Bayern team at the Santiago Bernabeu. And her determination was embodied in the night by Karim Benzema.
The French striker has had a miserable campaign with the Spanish team and scored only nine goals in 2017-18 before this game – his only goals against Europe in Europe this season against APOEL.
But Benzema is a player Who’s Endured Bad Form and Criticism to Stay Against the Odds at Real, and that’s why he’s from Zidane is judged so highly by Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of his teammates.
The former Lyon striker scored the only goal when defeating Bayern in the semi-finals of the 2013/14 Champions League. In the second game Real won 4-0, before he won the tenth European Cup in Lisbon.
Isco for an important goal against Atletico in the semi-finals after Los Blancos loses 2-0 to Vicente Calderon in the first game (3-0).
Benzema who brought them out of a whole with his two goals. Goalkeeper Sven Ulreich inexplicably left a pass and allowed the striker an open goal.
On both sides of the two goals scored by Real FC, Joshua Kimmich opened the gate in the first minutes and James Rodriguez shot home just under half an hour before the end.
Another goal would have equalized the Germans at away goals, and after dominating the first leg without rewards, it was the same with Jupp Heynckes‘ side.
Chances came and went, were missed or blocked by Madrid with the last desperate tackles and, on some occasions, some great shots from keeper Keylor Navas. Her calls for punishment fell on deaf ears.
In Munich, Bayern had 17 blows on the seven of Madrid, but Real found a way to win the game – even without a Ronaldo blow. And it was a similar story on Tuesday, when the Germans fired 22 attempts at Navas‘ goal, while Los Blancos shot only nine times.
The only results that counts are those that have been contested by two European elite teams.
Not that the aesthetics wants bother Zidane, who led the finals for the third consecutive time in his tenure and has not lost a knockout game in the competition as a coach.
Even if they rank second on Tuesday, Madrid does not want to go away. And after that timely return to form, Benzema will not.
