On his return after almost a month out of action, Karim Benzema left more doubts than certainties with Real Madrid. The Frenchman still hasn't recovered his best level and could be a 'nightmare' for the madridistas
The Real Madrid triumphed the past season, largely, thanks to Karim Benzema that comported like a 'beast' of face to the goal. The French signed a year of dream and was the fundamental piece in the approach of Carlo Ancelotti. Now, however, it is to several courses less and against the Osasuna, in the tie 1-1, left clear that still is not to 100%. To continue like this, will be one very bad news for the madridistas.
It signed a quite dense performance, as it has been in what it goes of campaign. It accused him that it was because it had arrived late to the pre-season and was missing him be to tope physically, but with the 'rest' of little more than three weeks neither has gone back to surrender as has accustomed to the Real Madrid. Had several clear opportunities in the party against the 'rojillos' and a penalti in favour that desaprovechó in front of Sergio Herrera that already it has seen him errar, of consecutive way, three shots from the eleven metres.
Shortly after commanding the balloon to the stick, marked a goal but after review of the VAR was cancelled by an offside very just. In the first part, also, signed a very clear occasion after a centre of Vinícius that defined with a volley that left went by very little. Of rest, discreet party of Karim Benzema that, up to now, was the one who sustained to the Madrid of 'Carletto' in the most complicated nights.
The confidence in him keeps , in any case. Although it came of almost a month without activity, the trainer of Reggiolo kept him in the terrain of game during all the party. And it is that it neither has who replace him further of Mariano Díaz (that it played with him like double point in the final stretch) or Eden Hazard that happens, increasingly and as always, unobserved in the plans of Ancelotti in the Madrid.
A Real Madrid quite grey
The ones of Chamartín did not have his night in the return after the stop of selections and put end to his series of nine parties followed winning, although they still do not know the victory. It will be necessary to see how face the crash of the Wednesday against the Shakhtar and if the team begins to mark differences, with special attention to Karim Benzema that it has to step forward to go back to be the leader that already went in the two previous seasons for the madridistas.
