Karim Benzema “He is at the top of his art,” the sports daily L’Equipe affirmed this Sunday about the goal that the Real Madrid striker scored yesterday against Barcelona, ​​and about which he raves about praise. The goal was “absolutely sublime”, with a “perfect heel hit” at the first post that is “one of the most beautiful of his career,” adds the newspaper, which recalls that Benzema has already scored 25 goals this season in all competitions. . The high heel followed “an immensely intelligent move” by the Uruguayan Federico Valverde and of “a perfect center” of Lucas Vazquez, stresses.

L’Equipe also highlights how the victory against Barcelona consolidates the position of the white coach, Zinedine Zidane, after he had been “on three occasions” on the verge of being dismissed, while now he is provisionally at the top of the League and very well placed to advance to the semifinals of the Champions League.

In spite of everything, remember that Zidane, “True to himself”, he rejects the euphoria because, as he acknowledged, they are “physically at the limit”.

On the other hand, L’Equipe points out that the French of the Barça team, the attackerss Ousmane Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann, were “Powerless” and “unable to create the slightest chance” against the Madrid goal.
