Two Reason Why Karim Benzema Should be Crowned Laliga Player of The Season Ahead of Messi (Opinion)

French striker Karim Mostafa Benzema is in his best season in real madrid since joining the club from French Ligue 1 side Olympic Lyon in 2009. The French striker have been under the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo, until Ronaldo left Real madrid in the summer of 2018.

This season, Karim Benzema 21 league goals helped real madrid in clinching their first Laliga title since 2015.

In my opinion, Karim Benzema should be awarded the Laliga player of the year ahead Barcelona star Lionel Messi who is also enjoying a wonderful goal scoring and assist because of the following reasons.


1. Lionel Messi despite scoring more goals (23) than Karim Benzema (21) and amassing a total number of 22 goal assists this season, Karim Benzema Should be awarded the Laliga best player of this season because the Real Madrid skriker netted a total number of 11 goals against the top 10 teams in the Spanish Laliga league table, while Lionel Messi only managed to score 8 goals against the top 10 teams in the league table while his other 15 league goals came against teams in the bottom half of the Spanish Laliga 2019/2020 season.


2. Filling the Ronaldo Shoe. Another reason why Karim Benzema Should be Crowned the Laliga player of the season is that he filled the big hole left by Cristiano Ronaldo in Real madrid.

Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real madrid to Juventus in 2018, Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos have carried the toothless madrid team on their shoulders. Their hard work and dedication to the real madrid team is very important to Ramos and Benzema making them not to loose any penalty conneded for the team. Sergio scored all the six (6) penalties he took in the Spanish Laliga this season while Karim Benzema converted all his five (5) penalties in five attempts.
