The four keys to the unbeatable Real Madrid this season
Karim Benzema is 'sweet'. The numbers praise his good moment at Real Madrid and in recent games his performance has skyrocketed. The double against Eibar is the last test that proves it and joins the two goals he scored against Galatasaray in the Champions League. These many have allowed him to overcome the numbers of football legends like Alfredo Di Stéfano and Puskas.
In just a few hours, the '9' of the white team has broken these records. However, the French goes beyond and already comes from afar. Since Cristiano Ronaldo left Madrid to land in Juventus in August 2018, Benzema has pulled the team to get gallons that have made him a fundamental piece for Zinedine Zidane.
This step forward is translated into numbers that exceed those of Portuguese in what has been removed from Santiago Bernabéu. The white striker has scored a total of 41 goals and has given 13 assists in 68 games if we consider all competitions. This results in the player marking or attending once every 103 minutes.

For his part, Cristiano has played 56 meetings with the Italian team and has scored 34 goals and given 12 assists. According to numbers provided by the Mister Chip Twitter account, the Portuguese dials or attends once every 105 minutes.
These are data that show Karim's superiority over Cristiano since they play separately. However, the Frenchman will not lower his arms and seek more to continue helping his team in each commitment, as he has done so far.
