He is turning 34 years old on Sunday but Karim Benzema $39.36, is aging like a fine wine. The Frenchman is on fire this season for Real Madrid as they look almost certain to win LaLiga trophy number 35.
Form of his life
Thanks to Benzema’s 13 goals and 7 assists in just 16 games ‘Los Blancos’ are perched on top of L aLiga with 42 points, an impressive 8 points clear o f nearest competitor Sevilla and unbelievably they a re an astounding 18 points clear of Barcelona.
The 13 times winners of the UEFA Champions L eague recovered from one of the biggest upsets in European football history when they were beaten at t he Santiago Bernabeu by Moldovian side Sheriff T iraspol 1-2. They bounced back and won the r emaining 4 games only conceding one goal and s coring 11 to easily top the group.
A mouthwatering tie with Paris Saint-Germain awaits them in the last 16. The French side has been shaky at the back this season and with Benzema on fire, he has 5 goals and 1 assist in 5 Champions League matches so far, Los Blancos have every reason to be going into the two-legged tie full of confidence.
