Karim Benzema's excellent season


NEWS | 23/03/2019

He is the team's leading marksman, the highest appearance-maker and has clocked up the most game time across the squad.
There can be absolutely no question as to the importance of Karim Benzema within the 2018/19 Real Madrid squad. The forward is enjoying a tremendous season and has established himself as one of the team's on-field leaders. His statistics, which place him as the squad's highest appearance-maker and the madridista to have racked up the most game time, are testament to his excellent campaign.

He has also showcased his goalscoring prowess, with his 22-goal haul propelling him to the top of the team's scoring charts. Benzema is currently in his 10th season at Real Madrid and, at this stage of the campaign, his goals tally is similar to his return in his most prolific campaign (in the 2011/12 season he had hit 23 goals by Matchday 28).

The Frenchman is a mainstay in the starting line-up. He has featured in 45 of the side's 47 outings, which is more than any of his teammates. His closest pursuer in this department is Sergio Ramos, who has notched up 40 appearances. What's more, Benzema has started all of these games apart when Levante were the visitors to the Santiago Bernabéu.

Game time & assists
The Whites' hitman has amassed 3,598 minutes of game time, a total that makes him the most-used member of the squad. All of these statistics are further reinforced by his record in the assist stakes. He has laid on no fewer than six goals for teammates, the last of which saw him tee Isco up in the win over Celta.
