Real Madrid Being Inconsistent with Performance

Real Madrid is having a stop-start season and hasn't been able to settle into a rhythm lately. There were hopes that their 5-2 victory over Liverpool at Anfield would set the stage for a solid finish to the season. However, subsequent performances include a 1-1 draw with 10-man Atletico Madrid and a 1-0 loss to an injury-plagued Barcelona team. Additionally, both matches were held at Santiago Bernabeu. That is undoubtedly cause for concern.

This season, Real Madrid is still competing in all three major competitions. However, none of them have them as a favorite. Benzema is one player whose performance mirrors that of the club. The Frenchman gave an outstanding performance at Anfield but was terrible against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Throughout the season, he has struggled with fitness issues, preventing him from gaining momentum. Relevo also reported that Benzema's apathy baffles the club and coach because they believe he is thinking elsewhere.
