Statistics have revealed that the forwards of Real Madrid have failed to live up to the mark since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure in the summer of 2018.

Real Madrid has managed to turn their fortunes around this season after a rather worrying start to the campaign. An emphatic win against Celta Vigo has certainly boosted the squad’s morale and Zinedine Zidane’s as well. However, a shocking statistic reveals that there are still ample issues at the club despite the recent run of worthy performances.

It is quite surprising to see that Gareth Bale is the only other forward apart from Benzema to hit double digits in La Liga since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club in 2018. The club has been heavily reliant on Karim Benzema along with Sergio Ramos to convert from the spot. Casemiro has also been clutch for the team and has usually broken the deadlock on several occasions.

However, the question still remains why aren’t the other forwards performing yet? Players such as Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior have been at the club since Ronaldo’s departure, however, it’s shocking to see that they haven’t yet hit double digits in terms of goals scored in three seasons.

Eden Hazard has been at the club for a season and a half but the former Chelsea man has just two goals so far in La Liga. The same follows for Luka Jovic who also just two goals in one and a half-season at Real.

Simply relying on Karim Benzema to find the back of the net day-in and day-out in suicidal. Given Karim’s age, it is high time for Real to look for a goal-scorer that can take this burden off the shoulder of Benzema.

Signing Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland next summer might just be the answer. But some reports state that Los Blancos will not be making any big signings next summer. If that is the case then what should the club and Zinedine Zidane do? Should Luka Jovic or Mariano Diaz then be given more opportunities to help solve the goal-scoring issues amongst the forwards?.
