Real Madrid have just touched the incredible statistic of the attacking trio – Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Gareth Bale – contributing 160 goals since joining the club at various stages since the last season.
These goals have come in all competitions like the la Liga and Champions League. Even though Ronaldo has scored most of these goals, Benzema and Bale have also contributed a lot either directly or through assists. Speaking about this irresistible combination, Benzema said that it is easy to play with players like Ronaldo because they are incredible.
The forward line up of the Spanish club has cost them an amazing £ 200 million in transfer fees alone. It is therefore not surprising to see them having scored so many goals. Continue reading Real Madrid attacks the Best Trio of Football

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says that he is not interested in signing new players in the January transfer window since he’s more than happy with the current crop of players. Madrid set a new record of winning 20 matches in succession.
The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Gareth Bale have been extremely impressive, while summer signings like Toni Kroos have also settled in well. Despite the good run, Madrid do not seem to have the strongest squad – especially in terms of numbers – in Europe. Hence, it has been suggested that Ancelotti may dip into the transfer window as a Christmas present from the club.
The former Chelsea and Paris St Germain manager has ruled out the possibility by saying that he remains content with the squad. This has also suggested that Karim Benzema is unlikely to be sold in the next month. The French forward has been linked with a return to France with PSG ready to pay huge sums of money. Benzema recently went on a run of more than 10 matches in which he assisted or scored a goal. He is often viewed as the pet signing of Madrid president Florentino Perez, but that has not stopped him from being linked with a January move.
“No[buying players], not for Christmas (laughs). Only thing I want is to go on vacation. After that, we’ll see about Modric and James’s condition. Both are recovering well and we might not need any new players. This wasn’t an easy game. The result is deceiving. The truth is Almería fought hard, and we struggled with possession. It wasn’t until the very end that we were able to control the game, with Ronaldo’s goals. This has been an unforgettable year. This team deserves a very high grade. We finish a year where we won lots of trophies, including La Décima,” said Ancelotti.

The 2016 Euro’s qualifying matches have been taking place in these past few days and weeks with nations from all over the globe facing each other with hopes of advancing through the next stages of this international tournament. A number of friendly games are also being played as a way for managers to experiment with different combinations and formations of players for their respective teams.
France will be the hosts of the tournament which kicks off in 2 years and this means that they don’t have play matches like the rest of the nations in order to secure their qualifying spot, since they are the hosts they are automatically qualified. France has played a series of friendly matches so far against Spain and Serbia.
The French squad managed to claim a 1-0 victory against Spain and Karim Benzema did not hesitate in displaying his joy concerning their triumph against the team of Vicente del Bosque.
When the friendly match ended and France won, Benzema expressed his satisfaction about the victory as he told the media: “It’s good, it’s always nice to win against big teams, especially to do it with style, and we did it tonight. We went head to head with one of the best teams of the world, so it’s good for the French team and for our confidence. After the World Cup, we needed to start working again and play a big game. We work together, we’re a really good team and we just need to keep working.”
France would later go on to play Serbia in a game that finished in a 1-1 draw. Their next match is against Portugal as Karim Benzema will be playing against his Real Madrid teammate C.Ronaldo on October 11.
