On Tuesday, a rare thing for him, he was silent during Real Madrid's 3-1 victory over Liverpool in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League.
On Saturday, during the expected Clasico against Barcelona, Karim Benzema found the net.
And in the most beautiful way, with a gesture of high class.
Receiving a cross from Vazquez, forward Merenge cut the ball's path with a magnificent heel.
A marvel of "Madjer" who left no chance for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André Ter Stengen (1-0, 13th).

A goal which allows Zinédine Zidane's players to launch the Clasico perfectly and which confirms the importance of Benzema in this Madrid team.
This is indeed the seventh game in a row in La Liga where the French scored a goal.
It's his 19th in 26 league games this season.
At 33, Karim Benzema confirms match after match that he is at his peak and that he is indeed one of the best players in Europe, and in the world, at the moment.
