Look no further than Kobe Bryant who changed the narrative of his legacy after winning 2 NBA Championships as Lakers' main man. Kobe's legacy as #24 is way memorable unlike when he wore #8 jersey and played next to perhaps the most dominant big man in NBA history.

Next season, Mbappe will become the man talisman and Benzema will revert back to his old role as the space creator. Or Benzema ends up as a super-sub if Haaland joins Real Madrid. The Norweigan ain't gonna ride the bench while earning €40-50m per season.

If Benzema only wins either UCL/LaLiga or goes trophyless.... then his Real Madrid legacy boils down as Cristiano's sidekick and was maybe 10th most important player during the club's UCL-dynasty. The likes of Cristiano, Ramos, Navas, Marcelo, Carvajal, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Pepe and arguably even Bale were bigger contributors.

Turok_TTZ wrote:If mbappe does end up in madrid, benzema will fulfill his final role imo. Training his successor. There is still much for Benzema to do.

Mbappe is objectively way superior than Benzema.

Since 2016-17 season, Mbappe has always produced more G+A than Benzema.

He doesn't need anyone's help to become a success in Real Madrid.

Turok_TTZ wrote:Benguain would have been the perfect duo in an alternate universe where we didn't sign cr7. Benz performs in big games but small games he may get complacent., higuain is an efficient scrub killer but a big game choker. Would've effectively canceled out each others weaknesses.


Benzema is capable scoring loads of goals against "small teams" like he's done in his whole career.
In this context Stats are not what is needed. We know what mbappe will bring. What is needed is mentality and responsibility. And in this aspect Benzema is superior. You fail to see the greater picture. As do most.

Benzema is not a Stat padder like his lesser peers. He's scores enough to settle the match. Or sometimes he just has a bad day. But otherwise it's undeniable he is not as prolific against small teams as he is in big games. But that's fine. I always preferred Big Game Benz anyways.

Shit teams don't be league leaders or being in the QF of the UCL. You can drop the defeatist mentality once in a while you know lol.

Karim Penzema

Also - "career high of 34 in all competitions" rofl

Pretty poor honestly, Lewandowski has seven straight season of 40+ goals in all comps in a row. Goes to show Benzema is a tier below as a striker.

I don't take a league that makes Jovic look like the second coming seriously. Their goals should be counted like the dutch league

Patrick Schick went from scoring 3 goals in Roma to scoring 20 goals now rofl

If Benz doesn't win the Balon d'or after this season then this will be the biggest robbery the the football world has ever witnessed

If you league-adjust Lewa's goals to an actual non-bot league, it'd probably amount to 18-24 ~ goals per season.

You know what's cruel though? This is a WC year.

If Madrid crashes out of the CL and France doesn't win the WC, Benzema will have a very meagre claim with just La Liga (assuming we win it). And the Ballon d'Or, in that scenario, would likely go to whoever wins the WC because it carries more weight.

Benzema will have to win the league AND CL in order for him to have a very strong claim regardless of who wins the WC.

He has been the best performing player in 2022 and the most clutch of all, but Madrid mustn't let him down this time like they did last year.

True, but if the BdO voting is still open during the WC, it will influence many voters.

When did it close last year?

BdO rules have supposedly changed to reflect only the season.
It should theoritically mean that voting is done BEFORE the WC.

Best player in the world at the moment along with Lewandowski and Mbappe.

But Benzema is the best of the best and he has won me over, well over a year now. He is so absurdly good in the UCL and arguably the best given how much Messloppy and CR stat-padded.

I like his hattricks and all but one of these days I would like to see him score the perfect Hat trick like he did in his 2nd season in Madrid. One with his right foot. The other with his left. And to finish off with a header goal. Showing his lethality knows no bounds.

Though I must admit it's funny as hell seeing gks just panic whenever Benz is nearby lately. Just what is he doing that these gks keep making these mishaps?

Lewandowski bandwagon needs to stop imo. Benz is head and shoulders above him and has been  for last two seasons. Come at me @hans.
