After Eintracht – Real Madrid – Ancelotti on Benzema: “Is there still doubt about the Ballon d’Or?”

If the French striker still has doubts, he can take a look at the ranking of the best scorers in the history of Merengue. We don’t know then where it will be, but it may still be too high. Scoring a new goal on Wednesday night against Eintracht Frankfurt (2-0), the French striker, who scored 324 goals on the hour, allowed himself to surpass a legend like Raul (323).
