Benzema is just a car! Nobody else scores more than him in the top leagues.
Last night in the 6th round of La Liga, Real Madrid defeated Mallorca with a score of 6: 1, and Karim Benzema became the main hero of the meeting along with Marco Asensio . He scored two goals and gave two assists, while setting an impressive record. The French striker under Carlo Ancelotti is in great shape, and the team maintains the lead in the Spanish championship.
Benzema v Mallorca
Karim opened an account already in the third minute, having recorded an interception as an asset. The Frenchman took advantage of the mistake of the fallen opponent, ran to the goal of the guests and delivered an accurate blow to the far corner.
At the end of half an hour of the game (by that time the hosts were winning with a score of 2: 1) Benzema rolled the ball well to Asensio, who easily outplayed the goalkeeper.
After the break, the Frenchman continued enchanting on the field. First, he passed the pass to Asensio, and Marco scored a hat-trick. And after another 20 minutes, Benzema scored his 200th goal in La Liga after hitting with a series of rebounds.
Jubilee goal and record of the XXI century
The 33-year-old Frenchman is showing impressive performance at the start of the season. He took part in six games in the Spanish championship, but has already hammered eight goals and gave seven assists. At the same time, Benzema is noted for effective actions in every game. Just a car!
1st round. Alaves (4: 1) – double.
2nd round. Levante (3: 3) – two assists.
3rd round. Betis (1: 0) – assist.
4th round. Celta (5: 2) – hat-trick and assist.
5th round. Valencia (2: 1) – goal and assist.
6th round. Mallorca (6: 1) – double and two assists.
The Frenchman’s second goal in the game against Mallorca was his jubilee in La Liga. Karim already has 200 effective strikes and the 10th line in this indicator in the entire history of the tournament. If the striker retains his form and avoids injury, he will probably rise a couple more places in the table.
Benzema currently leads the list of scorers and assistants in La Liga, and his current goal + pass result is a record. None of the players in the top five leagues in Europe in the 21st century scored 15 points in the first six rounds. In addition, Karim is leading this season in goals among top league footballers.
Real Madrid are showing an enviable performance, including thanks to the goals of Benzema. Madrid have scored 21 goals in six games, their best record since 1987/1988. The capital team leads the championship table and, apparently, is ready for a serious fight for the title.
