FIFA 16 predictions: Karim Benzema
Karim Benzema – Real Madrid & France
FIFA 15 Rating – 85
Predicted FIFA 16 Rating – 85
With the attacking prowess at the disposal of Real Madrid, Karim Benzema has again played an important role both domestically and in Europe. In 29 league appearances this season Benzema has scored 15 goals and also supplied ten assists, on a par with last season. With only one game remaining in La Liga it is likely that Benzema will finish runner up to Ronaldo in the Real Madrid scoring charts. In the Champions League, Benzema has contributed an impressive six goals in only eight starting appearances as Real progressed to the semi finals before succumbing to Juventus.
After an impressive World Cup last summer in which he scored three times, Benzema has made a number of appearances for the national team in friendly internationals as they prepare to host Euro 2016.
At only 27 years of age, Benzema is still a world class class striker who is clinical inside the penalty box. Playing for Real, he has adapted his game also to help provide assists and opportunities for his talented team mates. After a trophy-less season, Real will be aiming to get back to winning ways next season and Benzema will again play a key role in that.
