Benzema: I Place Team Objectives Over Personal Goals

Real Madrid has not had the best start to the 2014/2015 season but will be hoping they have been able to slightly appease their fans after their Champions League victory over Basel on Tuesday evening.

Striker, Karim Benzema who has been criticized lately for his profligacy in front of goal scored a beautiful goal in the 79th minute of Tuesday’s game but was quick to note afterwards that having his team win games is more important than him scoring goals

“I’m very happy that I scored, but the win was the most important thing.” 

“I think it was a really good match and with a lot of goals too. It has been a slightly difficult week, but getting the win and scoring five goals stands us in good stead.

“We’ve made a very good start to the Champions League. First match, first victory and it was important to win at home. This victory is good for everyone.

“Scoring is important, but playing with my team-mates is more important.”

Real Madrid will face Deportivo La Coruna next in the La Liga this Saturday.
