With a tremendous period and first place in the table, Real Madrid will try to continue to celebrate tonight (Saturday, 22:00) when they host Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabeu together with Karim Benzema, who is in the best shape of his career. The game, like all Spanish league games, will be broadcast on Channel ONE for HOT subscribers, yes subscribers, Cellcom TV and Partner TV.
A little more than 12 years since joining Blancos, the Frenchman has reached 200 league goals and Marca have dedicated the goal to him, recalling the 12 changes he has undergone since joining the team from the Spanish capital, some of which are particularly interesting. Currently, the striker has 8 goals and 7 assists in just 6 league games – the best start in La Liga history.

The Captain’s Movie
Benzema is not the first captain at Blancos, but since Cristiano Ronaldo left he is fully functional as such and even wore it quite a number of times, certainly when Marcello was absent.
The old man
In Spain, the beardless Benzema was called a “misunderstood genius” and a player who received many reviews, but since the beard appeared in 2015/16, he has changed his game.
The bandage on his right hand symbolizes his great commitment to the team. He knew how much the club needed him and continued to play even though he could undergo surgery.
When Benzema signed for Blancos he got the number 11, with Cristiano Ronaldo wearing 9 and Raul staying with the 7, but already after one season the Frenchman changed his number to 9 and has been wearing it for 11 years.
The striker celebrated his first league goal with shot marks, a celebration that usually characterizes young players, but now he is opening his hands to the sides, a sign of strength and excellence.
The most natural and logical change. Benzema was only 21 when he came to Blancos and scored his first hair, now he is 33 and will soon be celebrating 34.
When the striker arrived he did not come on a star standard, as Kaka and Ronaldo stole the spotlight from him. Over time he has built a world name for himself and is now the undisputed star of the team.
When Benzema signed with the team and in fact until recently, he had two “stripes” a little above the forehead, which were very characteristic of his appearance, but “New Benzema” probably no longer needs such a hallmark.
The actor came to Madrid alone, but now has a stable family and two sons. Everything he dreamed of.
The Golden Ball
In the early years of Benzema Real, he was far from receiving personal awards. Since CR7 left, he has been competing for the Pichichi where he will also win this season, with his name first linked to the Golden Ball and he is defined as a serious candidate.
The members of the attack
When he arrived at Real, Benzema’s partner on the offensive was Rod van Nistelrooy. Now the Frenchman has a wonderful team with Vinicius Jr., who was only 9 years old when Benzema scored his first league goal in a Real uniform.
The Santiago Bernabeu where Benzema scored his first goal at Real is unlike the current stadium, which has been renovated for about a year and a half and has become a new and impressive stadium, where Benzema will continue to play and of course conquer.
