And in the midst of a tense season, coach Ancelotti of Los Blancos rated Benzema as one of the best strikers on the planet.

The Frenchman scored twice in a crucial 2-1 win over Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday to extend Real’s lead at the top of La Liga.

After the game, when asked if he believes Benzema is the best striker in the world in terms of form, Ancelotti said AS: “I think so.

“He added the ability to put the ball in the net regularly and was great in his game.

“He is at the level of Cristiano Ronaldo or Haaland.

“Benzema is a player who makes the difference.

“We saw it again against Athletic, with two goals in a row.

“He’s in incredible form.”

Benzema has scored an incredible 20 goals in just 23 games for Real Madrid this season.

The striker is often considered the third wheel of the ‘BBC’ trio of Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and himself.

But Benzema continued to prove his doubts wrong with goal after goal.

In fact, he scored THAN goals this season than Ronaldo or Haaland – supporting Ancelotti’s statement.

Ronaldo has scored 13 goals in 18 games since returning to Manchester United.

And Haaland has scored 19 goals – once against Benzema.

However, the Norwegian has achieved that feat in just 15 matches – scoring more than one goal per game on average.
