“Benzema Closing in on Ronaldo’s All-Time Goal Record: A Look at the Impressive Striker’s Form”

Karim Benzema is on the verge of breaking Cristiano Ronaldo’s record for the most Champions League goals in a single season. The Real Madrid striker has already netted an impressive 15 times in just 11 games this campaign, and he only needs two more goals to surpass Ronaldo’s record of 17, which was set during the 2013/14 season. With the Champions League final still to play, Benzema has a golden opportunity to produce an unforgettable campaign and cement his name in the history books. It’s a remarkable feat that seemed impossible, but Benzema has proven that he is up to the challenge.

Benzema has been on fire in the Champions League this season, scoring an impressive 15 goals thus far. He recently matched his former teammate’s record from the 2016/17 season by scoring 10 goals in the knockout round, including a hat-trick against PSG in the Round of 16, another hat-trick and a goal against Chelsea in the quarter-finals, and three goals in the semi-finals against Man City.

Looking ahead, Real Madrid will face off against Liverpool in what is now the most repeated final match in history. Benzema has been in top form, having scored 43 goals in 43 matches across all competitions, with an incredible 10 goals in his last 5 games. This is quite an accomplishment for a striker who spent many years in the shadow of Ronaldo at Real Madrid.

Benzema is on the brink of breaking Ronaldo’s all-time record with just two more goals needed. He has had an outstanding season so far, only one goal shy of Raul Gonzalez’s 323 goals and is poised to become the second highest scorer in Real Madrid history. Another player who has caught the eye is Rodrygo Goes, particularly in the Champions League where he has scored 10 goals compared to his six in La Liga, despite playing fewer matches. Real Madrid has also become known for their comeback performances in the 2021/22 Champions League, with Rodrygo proving to be a key player in their quarterfinal match against Chelsea where he scored an important goal to secure their win.

Benzema and his teammate Rodrygo made an impressive contribution to the Champions League, scoring a total of 20 goals this season. In their match against Man City, Rodrygo scored two goals in the last minute, helping Real make a comeback. Benzema then scored the decisive goal in extra time, making him the first player in Champions League history to score two goals in the 90th minute during a knockout match. With 15 goals in this year’s tournament, Benzema has joined the ranks of greats like Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski, who have also scored 15 or more goals in a single season.
