Benzema’s 7-Minute Hat-Trick in Real Madrid’s 6-0 Win over Valladolid: Is it Worthwhile?

Date:

Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick in just seven minutes as his team defeated Real Valladolid 6-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu. The Frenchman was in scintillating form and completed his hat-trick with a stunning acrobatic finish. He was joined on the scoresheet by Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, and Lucas Vazquez. Benzema has now scored 14 league goals this season, but is still second in the top scorers charts with Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski leading the way after netting 17 times.

Despite Real Madrid’s impressive win, they still trail behind rivals Barcelona in the league table. The Catalan giants have been running away with the league under boss Xavi and it seems Carlo Ancelotti’s men have little hope of chasing them down. Real Madrid currently sits in second place, miles off Barcelona who are 12 points ahead at the top of the pile. With only 11 games left to play, time is running out for a spectacular title charge from Madrid.

The two sides face each other on Wednesday in the Copa del Rey. Real Madrid may have to turn their attention to the Champions League as they gear up for a quarter-final clash with Chelsea. The two sides face off in the first leg of the tie on April 12 with the Spanish side heavy favourites against a struggling Chelsea team under Graham Potter. Real Madrid will be hoping to advance to the semi-finals as they seek to add a 15th Champions League to their trophy cabinet.

Karim Benzema was undoubtedly the star man in Real Madrid’s win over Real Valladolid. He has been in fine form this season and has been instrumental in Real Madrid’s success so far. His hat-trick against Real Valladolid takes his tally to 14 league goals this season, which is an impressive feat. However, he still trails behind Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 17 goals so far this season.

Real Madrid’s win over Real Valladolid was a dominant display, but it may not be enough to close the gap on Barcelona. The Catalan giants have been in imperious form this season and have been running away with the league under boss Xavi. Real Madrid will need to produce something special if they are to catch up with Barcelona in the remaining 11 games of the season.

Real Madrid’s focus may now turn to the Champions League as they prepare for a quarter-final clash with Chelsea. The Spanish side is heavy favourites against a struggling Chelsea team under Graham Potter. Real Madrid will be hoping to advance to the semi-finals as they seek to add a 15th Champions League to their trophy cabinet.

In conclusion, Real Madrid’s win over Real Valladolid was an impressive display, but they still trail behind rivals Barcelona in the league table. Karim Benzema was the star man in the game, scoring a hat-trick in just seven minutes. Real Madrid may now turn their attention to the Champions League as they gear up for a quarter-final clash with Chelsea. They will be hoping to advance to the semi-finals as they seek to add a 15th Champions League to their trophy cabinet.
