Zidane’s response over Benzema’s stagnant goal performance
Real Madrid did manage to win over Real Valladolid and won the top of the standings from the hands of Barcelona. However, one thing that is of concern is the fact that Karim Benzema’s goal tap is still stagnant. So, what did Zinedine Zidane’s manager say about that?
In the 21st Spanish La Liga last weekend, Real Madrid faced Real Valladolid. Playing at Estadio Municipal Josorrilla, Real Madrid won with a score of 1-0 over the host. The match was colored by Casemiro’s goal which was disallowed by the referee. VAR footage shows that the Brazilian midfielder was first caught offside.
But in the middle of the second half, Nacho Fernandez was able to open the host advantage through his hard header. One goal advantage lasted until the fight ended.

Victory and the top of the standings are a blessing for Los Blancos. It’s just that, the mercy of Benzema who moncer at the beginning of this season never scored again. The French player has not broken the opponent’s goal again since the last time on December 19, 2019 ago. In total of six games in a row, Karim Benzema missed scoring.
However, coach Zinedine Zidane is not worried about this fact. The manager believes in the next party Benzema will score again.
“If Karim doesn’t score a goal today, that’s fine. The following match he will do it, “said Zinedine Zidane quoted from the official website of Real Madrid.
As for Nacho Fernandez as the winner of Real Madrid’s victory in the match, this is his first goal in all competitions in the 2019/20 season. The player came on for Dani Carvajal who was injured. Zidane said he was happy for the slick performance of the Spanish defender.
“He is a very professional player and a former academy player, so he is very familiar with this club. He always looks excited and shows it today. I’m happy for the goal. He is a defender, but also able to score goals, “he concluded.
