Benzema scores two as Real Madrid beat Eibar

Real Madrid hosted Eibar this Saturday on Matchday 31 in the Spanish League, La Liga. The Merengues rested Sergio Ramos and didn’t have either Vinicius Junior and Marcelo. French striker Karim Benzema scored twice in the second half to secure “La remontada” for the Merengue team. After heading to the break 1-0 down, Real Madrid counted with the French hero to turn things around against the “Top class” Eibar side.

Okay, Real Madrid can’t mathematically become Champions in La Liga. But what a trash first half they played. This Real Madrid side simply doesn’t look good enough. People were complaining that it was because only Zinedine Zidane could manage the high-inflated egos in the dressing room. However, what we see, is a lazy team, who thinks they will conquer Europe every single year. It doesn’t work like that. Even the Santiago Bernabeu, who was always working at its maximum capacity in recent years doesn’t look the same anymore. We see a lot of empty seats. Selfie supporters. Someone needs to do something as soon as possible to Real Madrid go back to its normal. Marc Cardona capitalized on some poor defending from Real and opened the scoring with 39 on the clock. 0-1 Eibar.

Real Madrid returned more willing in the second half and got turned things around with two Benzema headers. In the 59th minute, Asensio’s cross found the French, who headed home to level things up at the Bernabeu. 1-1. And the French doubled his tally taking advantage of a good Toni Kroos ball, with 81 on the clock. 2-1 Real Madrid. This was his 17th goal in La Liga this season. Benzema is Real’s top scorer in the competition, and he could have added two more, but he stamped the crossbar in one and wasted another good chance in the area. This match was also special for Zidane, who completed his 100th match as a manager in La Liga.

With the triumph, Real Madrid reached 60 points and is in third place. As we mentioned before, they have no chances of title whatsoever. But they also don’t are threatened of not going to the UEFA Champions League next season as well. They are 14 points clear of 5th-placed Valencia. Eibar side is also not facing any risks of relegation and will complete this season with a midtable campaign. In the next round, Real Madrid will visit Leganes. While Eibar take on Real Sociedad in the Basque Country.
