Much was expected from surprise outfit, Granada, in their Saturday trip to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, yet after just two minutes they found themselves behind to a Karim Benzema goal, with the Frenchman joining Gerard Moreno and Loren as the season’s top scorer in Spain.

Benzema failed to score against Atletico Madrid in the previous matchday, bringing to an end his run of five goals in five LaLiga Santander matches, however it took him no time at all to get back amongst the goals on Saturday.

It was actually Los Blancos’ first attacking move of the match which ended with Gareth Bale‘s cross finding Benzema unmarked in the penalty area, and he coolly did the rest.

The former Lyon forward’s form isn’t just restricted to the 2019/20 season either, with his strike against Granada being his 21st of the calendar year.

This draws him level with Lionel Messi, and only Robert Lewandowski is ahead of him with 22 since the turn of the year.
