Karim Benzema has only scored eight goals in La Liga this season. It’s no wonder that several are calling for him to be dropped from the team, particularly when an able replacement like Alvaro Morata waits in the wings.
However, Zinedine Zidane has previously pointed to the benefits of playing the French striker, especially those that serve Real Madrid’s star man Cristiano Ronaldo.
Regardless of his own form in front of goal, there can be no doubting the fact that Benzema has always been a great partner for the Portugese skipper in the front-line.
The stats in the above video provides definitive proof.
Do you think Benzema should continue to be picked ahead of Morata at Madrid?
