In Zidane's hands, Benzema found his sharpness
Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has rediscovered his best touch in the hands of Zinedine Zidane


Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has rediscovered his best touch. In the hands of Zinedine Zidane, the former Olympique Lyon player scored 14 goals in 16 matches under Zidane.

Zidane returned to Madrid’s hot seat in March with a 2-0 win over Celta Vigo. These goals were scored by Isco and Gareth Bale. It was the only match, since Zidane’s reappointment, where Benzema did not score.

In the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, Zidane has not found anyone other than Benzema who often tore the opponent’s goal net for Los Blancos.

In 21 matches since Zidane’s return, Benzema has played more than anyone, contributing 14 goals in 16 matches.

The second-leading scorer was Gareth Bale with three goals in 14 matches, then Mariano Diaz with two goals in five matches, and Isco with two goals in 14 matches.

Of the 32 goals scored by Zidane’s team this year, 18 have been shared between 14 players, with 11 players each having only one goal.

Real Madrid hasn’t scored big since Zidane returned. They scored four goals in one match (score 4-2) for the first time against Granada on Saturday (5/10/2019), and a 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao last season, best ever.

Los Blancos currently lead LaLiga Santander after scoring 16 goals, behind Barcelona’s 20 counts and Villarreal’s total 19. Zidane is looking for more goals, but certainly not only from Benzema.
