Benzema is enough, Madrid do not need a new striker

Real Madrid is considered to need additional players in their attack line, after going through the last two games without scoring goals against the opponent. However, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois did not agree with the suggestion, for him the presence of Karim Benzema on the front lines was enough for Los Blancos.

As we said, Real Madrid has not been able to score against opponents in its last two matches. First against Barcelona who fortunately ended with a score of 0-0. Then, the second match against Athletic Bilbao at the Santiago Bernabeu, the team made by Zinedine Zidane returned similar results.

In total, of the 18 Spanish La Liga matches, Real Madrid only scored 33 goals. The fact is that the number is still far behind that of rivals, Barcelona, who have scored 47 goals. Of course this is not according to public expectations especially the club has spent a lot of money to recruit Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic last summer.

Therefore, there is a suggestion that asks Real Madrid to recruit an attacker again in order to increase their bang on the rest of the season. But goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois did not agree with the suggestion.

“I don’t have an explanation for why the ball doesn’t want to go in, but I believe that my team-mates can score at any time. Karim is amazing, he has scored a lot of goals. I do not feel that a purchase is necessary. I have fully trusted the team, “Courtois said as quoted by Goal International.

The real question is the productivity of Eden Hazard’s goal, a player who was bailed out for 100 million Euros is still considered unable to contribute as expected since he was brought in from Chelsea last summer. The injury only made the atmosphere worse, but Courtois believes Hazard will return with a fierce performance.

“He is one of the best players in the world and he is being missed, even though others appear neat. He was sad because he could not help the team. He wants to play at Mestalla or Clasico. I hope he can play against Getafe. Time will fix it, you don’t have to take the risk, “he concluded.
