The French football star Karim Benzema won his 25th trophy with Real Madrid, against Osasuna (2-1) on Saturday, and equals Marcelo as the club’s most successful player.
Three days before the reception of Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League, Real Madrid is full of confidence.
The Merengues won their 20th King’s Cup, Saturday April 6, against Osasuna (2-1), nine years after their last title in the competition.
Madrid opened the scoring through Rodrygo on their first ball in the 2nd minute of the match, then were joined on the return from the locker room on a half-volley from the right signed Lucas Torro (58th).
They will secure the crown with a second goal from Rodrygo (70th). A coronation that comes at the best of times for Real Madrid, in full doubt after its two stinging defeats on the grounds of promoted Girona (4-2) and Real Sociedad (2-0).
Captain Karim Benzema, who arrived at the club in 2009, thus lifts his 25th trophy with Real Madrid. He won his third Copa del Rey, which was added to four Spanish championships, four Spanish Supercups, five Champions Leagues, four UEFA Supercups and five Club World Cups.
Benzema therefore equals Marcelo in the ranking of the most successful players in the history of the club.
