While Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid in 2018, Karim Benzema took advantage of this departure to establish himself as the leader of the Merengue club as explained by Gerard Piqué.

Considered as the perfect complement to Cristiano Ronaldo , Karim Benzema formed a formidable duo with the Portuguese for several years. So much so that when the five-time Ballon d'Or left Real Madrid in 2018, doubts emerged about the former Lyonnais' ability to take on the role of leader of the merengue attack. But Karim Benzema quickly dispelled the questions and proved that he is one of the best players in the world at his post. And a few hours before the Clasico, Gerard Piqué ignites in his turn for the French international.

“Cristiano left him space to occupy and he perfectly filled ”

“ I think Cristiano gave him space to occupy and he filled it perfectly. He now has the peace of mind to finish the actions well. Karim is more than a player who scores goals. In recent years, he has had some big seasons and we know the difficulty (to play against him). It's going to be fun and we're going to have a good time, ”he told AS.
