Despite Benzema’s Missed Penalty Kicks, Real Madrid Triumph Again


Even Karim Benzema’s off-day couldn’t stop Real Madrid from coming closer to securing the Spanish league title.

Benzema missed two penalty kicks seven minutes apart in the second half, but Madrid won 3-1 at Osasuna Wednesday to extend its lead over Atletico Madrid to 17 points. Both teams have five games remaining. Barcelona is 18 points behind Madrid, but with seven games remaining, it still has a chance to catch up.

Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde stated, “It was another modest step toward our goal.” “It was a challenging first half, but we made adjustments and finished strong.”

For the second time in his past 11 outings in all competitions, Benzema went scoreless. In the 52nd and 59th minutes, Osasuna goalkeeper Sergio Herrera stopped both of his penalty shots. Herrera dived to his right to make the saves as he targeted both of his shots to the same side.

Valverde stated, “It’s not a big thing.” “It’s possible. He’s scored a lot of goals for us, but it wasn’t meant to be today. We are certain that he will continue to score frequently in the remaining matches of the season.”

Benzema leads the league in scoring with 25 goals and has 15 goals in the last ten games in all competitions. To assist Madrid to reach the Champions League semifinals, the French striker delivered hat tricks and vital goals.

After the hosts had equalized with Ante Budimir in the 13th minute, Madrid defender David Alaba scored in the 12th minute after an assist from Benzema, and forward Marco Asensio added to the lead in the 45th minute. In extra time, Lucas Vazquez sealed the victory.

In the 32nd minute, Osasuna, who was in the ninth position and had just won two games in a row, had a goal disallowed for offside.

Due to an injury, Alaba had to be replaced at halftime, causing concern ahead of Madrid’s first leg against Manchester City in the Champions League semifinals next week.
