Looooool Benz Luka Modric man


sewious

Very definition of "threading the needle"


Eien_Howaito

Commenter [here](https://youtu.be/OYQwc4Hq1i4?t=391) had some slightly different hobbies in mind when he saw that.


der_Globetrotter

Dude was straight up dancing Samba…


Inter_Mirifica

Reminiscing one of his iconic goals with us, [against Caen](https://youtu.be/BubpAkuP79w). But the GK didn't buy the fake here, so he kept going.


ollster3000

What a goal that was


thalne

the audacity


Eien_Howaito

Well he always says his model in football and the player that inspired him the most is Ronaldo (R9)...


rdfporcazzo

It indeed resembled Ronaldo Phenomenon


Nakraad

Benzema is playing like prime Ronaldo with a pinch of Zidan


sewious

I've always thought Benzema was like if Zidane had been a striker. Maybe it doesn't make sense to anyone else but that's how I've always seen it.


elsejo

It does, my man


Eien_Howaito

Perez presented him as a mix of Zidane and Ronaldo (R9) when he signed him. Sir alex Ferguson compared him to Zidane before he even set foot in Madrid although he was already playing CF and [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkEFdFdKWgA&t=1s)you have Zidane agreing they share similatities in the way they move when he was still playing for Lyon. (Zidane was a consultant at the time for french TV while learning his futur job of coach)


cosmi9

He’s R9+Zidane


ooa3603

More like Shevchenko+Zidane. Benzema was never slow, but he never had the insane explosiveness that R9 had. That's what made R9 such a freak. He had the dribbling, speed, strength, ball control and vision wrapped in one. There have been forwards with better careers but there still hasn't been one since who was such a complete package.


MaTrIx4057

Benzema was always pretty slow tbh. The guy was never about the speed.


areyouhungryforapple

Why do you think Zizou absolutely loves Benzema, game recognizes game


oneandonlyA

Mohamed Zidan vibes indeed


doctorMiami1337

The pass from Godric... Benzy really denied him a 4th assist 😤


ugotbaited

20 goals 20 assists ✅


RjHospe

In all competitions or just La Liga?


YousefYako

All competitions


kiruzo

All comps


bgraviton

All competitions, counting the penalties won.


Aceress_origin

All competitions


CETERIS_PARTYBUS

40 g+a season achieved ✅


Bludgeoned-Testicles

Holy shit that’s incredible.


Fern-ando

More goal contributions than Haaland, just saying.


Salvador1010

Like twice as many games


napelm

Also including UCL round of 16, quarters and semis. Hopefully he will contribute in the finals too.


Salvador1010

Hopefully he wont 😬


Itsthatgy

In substantially more games I think.


celigodtko

Not necessarily a bad thing. Availability is key.


sewious

True. But to the kid's credit, he is not a striker.


LeBronzeVlac

Yeah, Haaland would score 2x Vini’s goals, and still lose to Bochum, Mainz, Gladbach…


MaTrIx4057

who cares?


Brilliant-Win4152

He only has 16 assists. Transfermarkt count pens won as assists.


Comunicado_Oficial

Tbh a pen won is more impressive than a lot of assists, it makes sense imo


pixelkipper

it doesn’t, should be a separate stat entirely


thalne

that's why he gave him the ball


pixelkipper

third player to do it after henry and messi?


speedycar1

Those two did it league only. Vinicius is all comps


[deleted]

[удалено]


mrblue6

Benzema is still on 12 (13 maybe after today) assists in the league unfortunately


not_y0ur_business

Benz wanted an assist, saw Mariano and decided to wait for Vini.


DoJu318

🤣🤣🤣


Entrepinares

Lmaoooo


iksuor

Me gusta 😂


osamaodinson

Oi oi thats lord mariano alright


Gyara3

Bludgeoned-Testicles

EpiDeMic522

tormarod

Everybody running while Benzema is just skating on grass


HerakIinos

Benzema is love Modric is porn


EpiDeMic522

I don't even what the fuck this means but I'll upvote it anyway.


Mr_XemiReR

Karim Fenomeno


Hortaleza

Benz was spazzing out lmao


SirChileticus

He ate Vini in that one lol


sleepysloth02

Benzema was born with the dribbling gene. Also so selfless to set up Vini.


Homerwithnohumour

Good guy Benz not giving Luka his 4th assist of the match to keep him down to earth


Cucumberino

Poor Levante, god damn


Re1Ko

Holy fuck murdered him


PauloHR

It seems Benzema has been learning some dance moves, maybe a bit of Samba


varunc

these beautiful assists by luka keep coming in man wow


undercover-_-

bro started dancing 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭


spaniard_daniel

What's the point or voting. Just give him. The balón d'or


los_blanco_14

Yea, modric deserves a second one.


EggplantBusiness

My commentator joked and said Modric would deserve a ballon d'or for this game


sewious

He is playing out of his mind. Absolutely shredding Levante


speedycar1

Vini or Benzema or Modric?


TheWulf

yeah


LampseederBroDude51

That’s fucking football right there


HarshangLad

Benz just wants chaos


mishmish17

This is what you call being graceful. I would’ve broken my ankle.


PowellOnPowellOff

Lmao Benz busting out some break dance moves to celebrate catching up to Raul


tejassingh2

That was the best thing i’ve seen in a while lmao


befisi

Give Benzema the Ballon d'Or already. My god what a player.


[deleted]

[удалено]


MaTrIx4057

The problem is that we won't face Levante in CL final.


Stickman95

Not with that attitude


pipekran

Benzema great dance.


FrancescoliBestUruEv

Benzema fenômeno Ronaldo 😂


los_blanco_14

R9 if he was french.


foff2020

Madrid scoring for fun and Liverpool might be missing Fabinho. Doesn't bode well.


haaaff

That's some R9 shit from Benzema


wassim0

The moves on Benz


ZZ3peat

Lol Benz juked that keeper totally dancing on the ball


ExpectTheUnexpected

Levante defenders tackling each other straight out of FIFA.


Fern-ando

Benzema is bulling Levante at this point.


IV1916

Benzema doing the fucking tango in front of the keeper


denz1l

Poor Levante man, absolutely destroyed


bartabax

i want to see a Benzema vs Saint-Maximin dance off


csunshine_

Easy goal for Vini but Benzema was dancing in front of the keeper haha


EpiDeMic522

Cardenas didn't deserve this from Karim tonight. Went to the disco in front of him. Also robbed Luka off his 4th assist of the night.


ANINETEEN

Those feints are ridiculous 😂


CheChocolateChap

my man busted out the Jay-Jay Okocha dribble in front of the keeper, oh lord


get_buried

So disrespectful, I love it


L34hhhh

what the hell was that Benzema?


SomeGammaGuy

Benz doing his best Gene Kelly impression ☔️


los_blanco_14

Benz went full panic mode for a sec


sheikhsabdullah

Benz did a R9 and that's 40 G+A for Vini this season.


los_blanco_14

Tf was benzema doing? It somehow worked ig


EggplantBusiness

He wanted to feint the keeper but Cardenas did a good job staying on his feet so Benz hesitated and decided to look for the pass


halrock

He tried to GK go down but he was fine and hold Benzema


Gold_Conversation_20

kkkkkk


WINDTHEAIR

Lmao Benzema


nice_lasagna

Benzema tried to copy the Mbappe goal against Courtois, or at least looked like it


hits_blunt_twice

Big Dick


Salvador1010

Damn benzema really doesnt want to let dembele end as top assister


sryboi

How was Dembele this season ? Any more consistent ?


Salvador1010

He missed alot of early games from an injury he sustained with france last year in the euros. After that there was the whole contract renewal debacle which is still ongoing but hes really been one of our best players and much more consistent in the 2nd half of the season under xavi. Hes joint top assister in la liga with like half the games played. Definitely his best period of form since he joined.


sryboi

Nice. I'll admit I had lost hope with him., but if he works seriously he can really be one of the best.


MFLORES888

This guy turned it around. He was pretty shit when he came in and now he's a very different player


Eien_Howaito

Sure... you get to be bought millions by what is arguably the most popular club in the world when you are "pretty shit"...


Enartloc

He was amazing in his first season at barely 18. The raw talent was there.


tkbchimyjr18

Benz getting into his bag haha


AbdussamiT

u/savevideo


mehrabrym

Finally a proper Tapinaldo replacement /s
