Karim Benzema’s performances have been critical to Real Madrid’s success and attempt to remain competitive over the last several seasons. Los Blancos has been undergoing a transition due to the departure of major players as well as changes in coaching staff. One of the constant positives throughout this stretch has been none other than the club’s leading man. Benzema has been one of the team’s best players in recent times and this season has been no different as he notched an impressive eight winning goals in La Liga, with one game to go.

Benzema’s tally is the third best in the league only behind Luis Suarez (leading Atletico Madrid’s charge) and Youssef En-Nesyri (a key player for Sevilla who also made a push for the league title). Two of the top three will headline the deciding match day as Suarez and Benzema will be on duty with their sides to try and claim a victory in their respective matches. Fresh off officially being recalled to the French national team and winning the best French player abroad, Real Madrid’s top goalscorer will be hoping to make his mark this weekend.
