Real Madrid finished last season with a double of La Liga and UEFA Champions League. The Los Blancos were a class apart in their first season back under Carlo Ancelotti. The season was largely defined by the amazing performances of Karim Benzema.
The French international has been in fine form for the past couple of seasons and has scored goals for fun. The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo has unleashed a beast in Karim Benzema who has blossomed into one of the best strikers in the world.
The French forward finished as the top scorer in both La Liga and Champions League last season. In addition to his goals, Karim Benzema is also crucial as a leader and a senior player in the squad. The French international has also been recalled for the national team after an extended absence of 5 years.
Real Madrid wants Karim Benzema back at the earliest
The French international is struggling this season with an injury. The striker suffered an injury against Celtic in the Champions League group stage match. He has missed the last few games and Real Madrid have not looked as comfortable as before.
Even though Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. have done a good job as a strike partnership in his absence, the team misses his influence as a leader on the pitch. The striker is trying to regain fitness as soon as possible and is working hard in training.
However, more than Real Madrid, French Federation will be anxious about the return of Karim Benzema. The striker has been in the form of his life and the national team is banking on his goalscoring in the upcoming FIFA World Cup. Didier Deschamps will want his star forward to regain fitness well in time to have some club games under his belt before heading to Qatar. For the time being, let’s hope that Karim Benzema is able to return to full fitness and prepare adequately for the World Cup!!
