Karim Benzema believes he would score twice the goals with Mbappe on his side.
The Real Madrid ace has given his thoughts on linking up with national teammate Kylian Mbappe at Santiago Bernabeu.
Both Benzema and Mbappe has scored 34 goals and 38 goals respectively and we can just imagine how this lethal duo would dominate the La Liga.
“Yes, I say it often. I like to play with him in the national team and I would like to play with him at the club level,” Benzema said. “I think we would score twice as many goals. Or maybe even triple! With Mbappé I understand myself well in the national team because we know what the other is going to do. For example, we both like to go to the left but we will never be there both at the same time”
“I wished him a good game (before the Real Madrid – PSG game). Personally, I didn’t have any special pressure on that match. I just wanted my team to win, because I was disappointed with the first leg. I got there (with a hamstring injury), I hadn’t played for a month. And we had been bad, we had been dominated the whole game, we hadn’t even attacked… That was when I knew it was going to be something different in the 2nd leg.”
