SOCCER 2010 - Champions League Lyon Beat Real Madrid 1-0

Even though 22 year old Karim Benzema hasn’t had the greatest start to his Real Madrid career he is still very much a feared forward and one who could well turn on the style at the World Cup and prove any of his doubters wrong.

The former Lyon man had his choice of clubs last summer and took the decision to make the big money move to the Bernabeu but has found himself frozen out of the first team picture after an indifferent spell at the Spanish giants however there is no doubting Benzema’s abilities and with a decidedly average opening group.

On his day Karim is almost unplayable, his physical presence a nightmare for defenders to deal with and his lethal predatory ability in front of goal is enough to scare the life out of goalkeepers. A lot depends on whether an indifferent season at Real will spur him on to success or stifle the French international.
