Real Madrid and Karim Benzema have not come down from their cloud. Three days after the successful and authoritative success in the Clasico against FC Barcelona (3-1), two days after the evening rich in emotions experienced by the French striker, the Merengues and their new Ballon d’Or responded perfectly this Wednesday night in Elche (0-3).

The victory was expected for the leader, on the ground of the red lantern, but the real one put the forms, with a perfectly controlled success. With a little more success, the score would have been wider, and Benzema would have taken even better care of his statistics, because three goals were (logically) denied to Carlo Ancelotti’s men for offside positions of a few centimeters. The « Nueve » was thus deprived of two goals (6th, 61st), and an assist for Alaba (26th).
This is not a problem for Real, who opened the scoring with a new cannon shot from Federico Valverde (0-1, 11th), nor for Benzema, who was able to celebrate his Ballon d’Or with a goal at the end of a superb one-two with Rodrygo (0-2, 75th).
