The Meringues are ready. And the general rehearsal is successful: Real Madrid crushed Real Sociedad 4-1, Saturday March 5, during the 27th day of La Liga, and thus consolidated its leading position (63 points), eight units ahead of Sevilla FC , hooked Friday by Alavés (0-0).

Four days before the shock against Paris Saint-Germain in the knockout stages of the Champions League at the Santiago-Bernabéu, the people of Madrid reacted well while their French rivals fell on the field of OGC Nice .

Despite a penalty scored by the Basque Mikel Oyarzabal, the people of Madrid fought back just before the break thanks to two sublime strikes from far left foot signed Eduardo Camavinga (40th) and Luka Modric (43rd). At the end of the match, Karim Benzema converted a penalty (75th), then Marco Asensio, who entered the game two minutes earlier in place of Rodrygo, pushed a hand-in from Carvajal into the back of the net to seal the success (79th) of the club in the Spanish capital.

Benzema approaches Di Stéfano, Camavinga takes his place

Karim Benzema was, once again, one of the great architects of his team's victory. Despite two goals disallowed for offside positions, "KB9" scored a new goal and is getting ever closer to the record of Alfredo Di Stéfano, third on the podium of the top scorers in the history of the "White House" . The French international is only two goals away from the Spanish-Argentinian legend (306 goals against 308).

There is another Frenchman who marked this meeting with his superbness, in particular with his goal, it is Eduardo Camavinga. And to the few supporters worried at the announcement of the absence of Toni Kroos (affected in the hamstrings of the left leg) and at the sight of that of Casemiro, suspended against Paris, the former Rennais sent a clear message. Preferred to Federico Valverde for this match against the Basques on Saturday, he positioned himself as the designated successor to the Merengue midfielder.
