Symbol of a Real overtaken by Barça, the captain of the Merengue was scratched by the Spanish press.
Dominated 1-2, this Sunday by Barça during the Clasico, Real saw its rival fly away (and have a 12-point lead in the standings after 26 days). This Monday, AS in his notebook scratches Karim Benzema, the captain of the Merengue who receives the note of 0/10. “ Unseen, once again. Nothing at all. He does not even manage to contribute to the possession of the ball by going down to receive it, nor to show himself in the surface. He’s a far cry from the brilliant version that won him the Ballon d’Or. It lacks rhythm, it is slow. He can’t run and play. If Los Blancos find their attacker they will have a treasure, but they have been waiting for this day for too long. And that day does not come. »
