Karim Benzema has enjoyed an improved week for Real Madrid.
On Wednesday night against Sevilla, he linked up play exceptionally, creating a goal in the first half and setting up three more openings.
After the break, he added a brace of his own.
However, that's only two games.
Before those matches, doubts had been raised over his performances for Los Blancos, and he was whistled on more than one occasion at the Bernabeu.
He can't afford another baron spell, because, if he does have one, these forwards could be targeted by Madrid's money.
