The sextape affair: a trial requested for Benzema by the courts

 The sextape affair: a trial requested for Benzema by the courts In the case of sextape blackmail against Mathieu Valbuena, Karim Benzema, the Real Madrid striker, should be tried. On a purely sporting level, Karim Benzema has shown himself in great form in the Real Madrid jersey since the recovery of the Liga with three goals and an assist in five matches. But outside the lawns, he might have some problems.

The Real Madrid players know what winning the Pichichi would mean for Benzema , so they're going to try everything to help him achieve it. Recent form suggests that the Frenchman is more likely to add to his tally than Messi in the final two fixtures of the campaign. The Barcelona forward hasn't scored in

Karim Benzema rescued a point for Real Madrid at Mestalla and, in doing so, drew level with Lionel Messi at the top of the LaLiga Santander scoring charts. The Frenchman netted his 12th goal of the season against Valencia and will face his Pichichi competitor at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.

La Liga Santander only has two rounds remaining and Real Madrid CF is hell bent on defeating Villarreal on Thursday night to secure the title. Likewise, the team is getting behind striker Karim Benzema, who still has a chance to win the Pichichi Trophy if he becomes the league's top scorer at the end of the season.

As it stands, FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi is leading the goal tally with a total of 22 so far. The Real Madrid forward is three goals behind with a total haul of 19 league goals. Winning the Pichichi will be a vindication of sorts for Benzema, who lived under the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo for many years.

For Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane, French striker Karim Benzema deserves to win the 2020 Ballon d'Or. © Provided by Football 365 Karim Benzema on fire At the age of 32 Years and after the departure of the former star of the team Cristiano Ronaldo, the former OL striker seems to be at the top of his game this season.

Our La Liga rivals have managed a narrow La Liga win over Granada and Lionel Messi has overtaken Benzema in the Pichichi race. Here's how the table of La Liga's top goalscorers look like: Lionel Messi , Barcelona - 14 goals. Karim Benzema , Real Madrid - 12 goals. Luis Suarez, Barcelona - 11 goals.

Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema are still first and second in the Pichichi standings for the top scorer award in LaLiga Santander. Both players scored over the weekend and they both did so from the penalty spot. That sees Messi move onto 19 league goals for the year, with the Frenchman on 14.

After a somewhat disastrous run for the team since the departure of Ronaldo (and Zinedine Zidane), Benzema has had a very heavy weight on his shoulders. With Real Madrid currently in pole position to win their first La Liga title since 2017, the Pichichi as well as the Zamora Trophy for keeper Thibaut Courtois would mean a lot for the organisation as a whole.

Three goals in two matches won't be easy but doable. However, there's no guarantee that Messi won't be adding more to his tally as well. The Argentine star hasn't scored in Barcelona's last three games, but that does not mean he wasn't playing well. In fact, he was instrumental in several assists.

Benzema wants Lyon return… but not just yet

According to Marca, Ronaldo was the last Real Madrid player to win the Pichichi, and that was way back in the 2014-15 season. In the years that followed, Messi and fellow Barcelona forward Luis Suarez dominated the award.

After just over a year since Zidane's return to the helm of the squad, Real Madrid is on the cusp of an immensely successful season. If they win La Liga and the individual trophies, they will be going into the second leg of their UEFA Champions League round-of-16 clash against Manchester City with booming confidence. It remains to be seen if they will be able to bounce back from a 2-1 first leg deficit.
