Lol I can’t remember the last time benzema scored 50 goals in a single season let alone every season for however long CR7 kept it up

That goal was a string of magnificent passes.💯

Dinoco Blue says:

I’m not saying Benzema is bad yes he’s one of the most underrated players of this past decade but saying he’s filled Ronaldo’s boots is kinda disrespectful to Ronaldo

I Got That PMA says:

Lol. Barca is in shambles and old and messi is finally declining a bit. Madrid hadn't won la liga or a champions league. So to claim Benzema has replaced Ronaldo in any way is ridiculous. This is without bringing statistics into the convo.

Nguegang Fabrice says:

You don’t fill the shoes of the GOAT

Thomas Richter says:

No he hasn't lol Benzema and Madrid are having a great season, but his numbers are not even in the same realm as Ronaldo's during his time at Madrid.

If this was a barca game and it finished 1-0 like this the title would of been about antoine griezmann not being able to fit in the squad or something. with him on the thumbnail. The fact is media nowadays are just bias but what do I know

MF Aphex Heads says:

I remember cr7 fans stating Real wouldn’t survive without him….where are they now?

It is currently cr7 who needs a world class team to provide him trophies..

He's been the savior of the last 2 seasons for Real Madrid and now he gets praise
