Even Zinedine Zidane who is the manager of Real Madrid is quite fatigued when it comes to the current form of the striker. Moreover, Benzema’s fitness has also come into question many times but Zidane has always avoided to comment.
Benzema’s form has not only affected him but also the whole team. As, his poor form continues Real Madrid have almost lost La Liga to their arch-rivals, Barcelona.
Moreover, his current form has added pressure on Real Madrid as the sole responsibility of scoring goals has now fallen upon Cristiano Ronaldo’s shoulder.
Furthermore, Benzema is not alone as Gareth Bale is also going out of luck nowadays. And, the sad part in all of this is that both of these are Real Madrid’s strikers and their current form has placed added pressure on the team.

Can Karim Benzema turn this around?
Benzema has both the talent and the skill that can help him save his future at this club. The striker’s career is filled with such examples where he has made a comeback by scoring goals for the Spanish club at crucial times.
