Benzema in prolific form on the road


NEWS | 08/12/2018 | Javier García

The Frenchman has netted six times away from home so far this term.
Karim Benzema has been particularly prolific in the team's away outings during the opening few months of the campaign. The French hitman, who tops the side's scoring charts, has struck six of his 10 goals on the road and he'll be looking to add to his tally on Sunday, when the team travel to El Alcoraz to face Huesca.

When Benzema has been on the scoresheet away from home, Real Madrid have always emerged victorious. Against Celta at Balaídos he claimed the Man of the Match honours after netting a sublime opening goal. Before that game, he bagged a brace in the side's trip to face Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic. His first goal that night was a stunning effort following some fine individual play, whilst the second was a glancing header after Gareth Bale had nodded the ball back across goal. 

Benzema was also on the mark in the Copa del Rey visit to Melilla, where he broke the deadlock in a 4-0 rout and he also notched in the 4-1 away drubbing of Girona, a match which saw him claim his first brace of the campaign.

Leading goalscorer
So far this term, Benzema has 10 goals to his name, a return which sees him lead the way in the Real Madrid scoring charts. In addition to the aforementioned strikes, he has netted a further three at the Bernabéu and was also on target in the UEFA Super Cup.
