Real Madrid: artist then realist, Karim Benzema torpedoing Athletic Bilbao

But who will stop Karim Benzema ? Not Athletic Bilbao anyway. The striker of Real Madrid signed a brace in three minutes on Wednesday night in San Mamés, from the outset: first a curling marvel since the left corner of the Basque area, in the opposite window (4th); then a more classic goal on an opening of Eden Hazard (7th).

💪 Thanks to a brace from Benzema at the very start of the match, Real left Bilbao with a 2-1 victory!

👏 The Madrilenians are comfortably installed at the head of the championship! 76 wbmSpe

– beIN SPORTS (@beinsports_FR) December 22, 2021 With those 14 e and 15 e achievements of the season, the center forward of the Blues (22 years since Sunday) consolidates its place at the top of the La Liga scorers’ standings. He has now registered 76 career pawns, in all competitions, with OL, the France team and Real . The Merengue are also walking at the top of the Spanish championship, since they are 8 points ahead of Sevilla FC, with one more match.

Back unexpected and winning in the France team and resounding success at Real: 401 will remain a great sporting vintage for Benzema, despite the disappointing fourth place at the Ballon d’Or .
