Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema continued his impressive form as he scored two goals against Sevilla during the weekend, which helped Real Madrid close in on the title. As a result of this 3-0 win, Real Madrid now have a 10 point advantage at the top of the table. This means that the club would be given the title if Barcelona lost their match in hand against Rayo Vallecano later in the evening. This has been a tremendous achievement from Real Madrid and it would be their first title after three years. Karim Benzema has been one of the players of the season for Real Madrid this season.
He once again scored two goals against Sevilla to give Real Madrid a comfortable 3-0 win. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the other goal for Real Madrid. Real Madrid were coming into the match on the back of the Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of Bayern Munich. However, they showed no signs of disappointment from the midweek result, as they continued to set pace in the Spanish league. Real Madrid now have the most number of goals scored by any team in the Spanish league after the 3-0 win. If Madrid win the title this season, it will be the 32nd league title in their history.
“This is good for us, it was a very important game for us as we continue on looking to be champions. The Champions League is in the past, we only care about the league now,” Benzema said after the 3-0 win over Sevilla. Apart from scoring two goals, Benzema also created the goal for Cristiano Ronaldo. The two goals scored against Sevilla mean that Karim Benzema has now got 31 goals in all competitions this season, while he has scored 20 in the league alone.
