the championship is madrid, the blues pushes up

Rüdiger doesn’t frame his head

Corner for Chelsea and Alonso! He finds Rüdiger’s head, but it’s way up! However, the German defender was all alone…

Benzema does not fit

Free kick very well placed for Real Madrid and Benzema will take care of it! The French international does not find the frame.

Yellow card for James!

Already yellow card for Chelsea and Reece James! Vinicius turns and overtakes the side that makes a mistake entering the surface!

The center of Marcos Alonso!

First good overflow from Marcos Alonso, who centers very hard at the penalty spot! Nacho gets a hole but Mendy clears!

Modric not far from an assist

Modric is already beaming down the middle with a step-over chained to a pass from the outside of the foot! Vinicius is a bit tight!

Big pressure from Chelsea

The Chelsea players press very high, which doesn’t bother the merengues at all! The Madriders behave like ball leaders.

Kanté and Benzema captains

Small wink, because the captains of the two teams are French. Karim Benzema and Ngolo Kanté shook hands while throwing!

…and supported by Ronaldo

In an interview with Sky Italia, former Brazilian striker Ronaldo put Karim Benzema in the running for the Ballon d’Or, which he himself won in 1997 and 2002. “He deserves the Ballon d’Or, I’ve said it for years and I’ve been criticized for it, he explains. But he deserves it, he’s a great striker.”

KB9 have scored 11 goals in 8 C1 games this season, including two hat-tricks in their last two games, beating PSG in the round of 16 second leg and Chelsea in the quarter-finals first leg.

Benzema in the running for the Ballon d’Or…

Following the rule change announced by France Football, the 2022 Ballon d’Or will be determined at the end of the current season. And not at the end of the year. Several attackers stand out among the candidates at the beginning of spring. The opportunity to compare Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappé, Robert Lewandowski and Mohamed Salah’s stats.
