Liverpool 0 – 1 Real Madrid The aftermath after this ad A final he had been waiting for. After winning the Spanish Super Cup and La Liga with Real Madrid earlier in the season, Karim Benzema had the opportunity to end his 2021-2022 season in the best possible way on Saturday evening by lifting the Champions League. To do this, we had to beat Liverpool at the Stade de France and that’s what the French striker did with his partners (1-0 success). Not decisive but important in the game with in particular a lot of stalls and calls to free up space, KB9 helped his teammates and was therefore able to lift the big-eared cup. A new well-deserved coronation for the former Lyonnais who also ended this European campaign as top scorer with 15 goals (2 assists), as in the Championship elsewhere (27 achievements, 12 caviars). Exceptional statistics for the 34-year-old player and therefore three club trophies this season. Something to delight the main concerned. “These are important things in life. It’s always good to win the Champions League, even more so this year and we did. We deserve because we only played big teams. (…) There is no chance! You can have it once but not every time. We deserve our victory, we made incredible efforts, we never gave up. We are all important. I would say that’s everyone. It’s a real group, ”he said on Canal +. “I think that in club, I cannot do better” And now? If Karim Benzema will join the France team for a few Nations League matches, his eyes are certainly already on October 17 and the Ballon d’Or 2022. Already a big favorite to win this trophy at the end of the year before this final, the Frenchman is now even more so. It is hard to see how this reward could escape him, but the striker prefers to temporize him: “It’s always good to participate, to help my team win, to score goals. To finish top scorer is exceptional but the most important thing is to win my fifth C1. (…) I think that in club, I cannot do better. Now we will see what will happen but I am proud of what I have achieved. There is still time before the awarding of this famous Ballon d’Or but Karim Benzema is very well on the way to winning it and succeeding Zinedine Zidane on the list of winners of the French BO, crowned in 1998 after in particular the victory in the World Cup with Blues. In the meantime, the Spanish press, especially pro-Madrid, will certainly still feast on the subject and push for their favorite Frenchman.
