You know, when you are scoring goals and winning matches by the margins Real Madrid have won this season, everything seems like magic and you feel like king of the world. That is exactly how Karim Benzema is feeling right now. Benzema has said that he is happy with how he himself is progressing at Real Madrid. He also praised his partnership with Crsitiano Ronaldo.
Guangzhou Evergrande, a chinese football club lost 7-1 to Real Madrid. Ronaldo and Benzema both scored. Benezema also expressed his delight at being called up by Le Blanc for the national side and said that now he needs to keep working really hard in order to improve and enjoy football.
Though I am a Real Madrid fan and I like the way Benzema and Ronaldo are working, but I still have that gut feeling that this partnership is the deadliest partnership in the world vs weak teams or in unimportant matches. I think if Benzema and Ronaldo play good against Barcelona then they can feel good about themselves, beating sides as poor as Chinese League Leaders or the Americans is nothing to be proud of.
Hopefully Benzema will be able to do that and reach the level of his idol, Ronaldo.
