UEFA Champions League

Giroud Vs Benzema: Ahead Of Clash, Checkout Their Performances So Far In The Champions League

Recently, Both Madrid and Chelsea fans have argued who is better between Giroud and Benzema. No doubt the two players are profilic strikers who have proved themselves as top "9" both for their clubs (present and past) and country in previous years. Having similar qualities especially when it comes to scoring with their heads, defenders find it difficult to stop them when their is a free ball in motion.

For me, Benzema has more qualities and have scored more goals than Giroud. Also, In terms of trophies, Benzema has more to his name than Giroud. However, comparing the two based on their champions league performance this season I would pick Giroud. 

Despite not having a good playing time for Chelsea due to Chelsea's plenty striking options, he has been outstanding with just 2 starts in the champions league. Below are their Champions League stats so far this season;

Take a look at Benzema stats so far in this year's UEFA Champions League:

7 appearances 

6 starts

5 goals 

114 mins/Goal

Take a look at Giroud stats so far in this year's UEFA Champions League:

7 appearances 

2 starts

6 goals

42 mins/Goal

As you can see from the stats above, it shows Giroud has performed better despite starting for Chelsea twice, compared to Real madrid's Benzema who has started 6 times for his club in the champions league with five goals to his name.

what can you say about these two players?

Seeing their stats what do have to say about it?

However, the two would have a chance to face each other in the champions league as Chelsea battles Real Madrid in coming days. Then we can see how well they would perform.
