When the arguments are repeated, the data is accumulated. Karim Benzema and Vinicius Júnior They are the sixth pair of forwards of the Real Madrid which add up eight or more goals each on matchday 13 of the League. 10 the French, eight the Brazilian, who scored one of the four of the white team in Granada. The other five duos: Cristiano and Benzema (2014-15), Cristiano and Higuaín (2011-12), Suker and Mijatovic (1996-97), Juanito and Santillana (1983-84) and Puskas and Gento (1960-61). Pure madridista history.

The ‘9’ and the ’20’ of Madrid remain one more week as first and second in the classification of the Pichichi, on the way to another milestone for the club, which only once in its history has celebrated gold and silver goals in the national tournament. It’s hard to believe, but it’s been almost 40 years since that. It was in the 85-86 season, with the 22 goals by Hugo Sánchez and 16 by Jorge Valdano.

The scoring consistency and physical health of Benzema and Vinicius are key for the current Madrid and that is why Ancelotti gave them rest in the final stretch of the duel of Los Cármenes, already with the party decided. The Frenchman, on a gray day, did not score, but attended Modric in the perfect counter that ended in a Brazilian goal. It was the relaxing 1-3, the eighth goal for Madrid Carletto to the counterattack, leader of the League in this section.

Karim did not celebrate too much, aware that he had missed a clear chance minutes before, but Vinicius did show the wide smile that characterizes his game since the beginning of this season.

The ex of Flamengo adds eight goals in 960 minutes, a figure that exceeds the total of goals (seven) that he accumulated in his first three seasons as a Real Madrid player. One in 18-19 (in 878 minutes), three in 19-20 (1,370 minutes) and three in 20-21 (1,962 minutes). A statistic that perfectly explains the moment of form of the striker, who started in the last Brazil-Argentina qualifier for the World Cup. A capital player for Ancelotti, who withdrew him from the field when the match, already broken, began to turn into a hostile environment. Monchu made a reckless tackle on the Brazilian that forced the referee to show him a rigorous expulsion, and from there Vinicius, unbalancing and physically superior, began to receive more attention than desired from rival players.

“The change of Vinicius It has been to avoid problems. The party was hot on their part, so it was to avoid problems and to avoid problems for Granada, “he explained after the match. Carlo Ancelotti, in dialogue with Robert Moreno before the anger of the Spanish coach for the expulsion. “Ancelotti told me ‘calm, calm'”, admitted the ex-coach. German, heavyweight in the Granada defense, praised Vinicius: “He is such an unbalancing player that tends to get people to make entries about him“.

The game served so that Asensio and Nacho will be vindicated with two goals after their absences in the last lists of Luis Enrique, and again evidenced the great moment in a way that they live Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. “Asensio is fulfilling everything I ask of him,” he valued Carletto about the Mallorcan, and added a new compliment about the midfielders: “The level that Modric and Kroos have is very high. They are still the best media in the world for me. The dynamics of the three surprises me (also Casemiro), they do things that i don’t ask them to do, they do it naturally. They have a quality that is difficult to explain. The change of position that they have during the matches, sometimes lowers Modric, sometimes Kroos, Casemiro rises, I’m not going to get there where they have to move, the madridista can be calm, I’m not going to get involved“.
