Since Ronaldo left in the summer of 2018 (to Juventus), Benzema’s performances at Real Madrid have been excellent.

Former Italy striker Antonio Cassano said Ronaldo must pray every morning and thanked Benzema for helping his former team-mate.

Cristiano Ronaldo must pray in the morning and say : Thanks to Benzema for playing with me. Ronaldo scores and will always score. Benzema is different, he is both a striker at the table and Zidane, a number 9, 10 and 9 and a half.
