Spanish journalist claims there shouldn't be a question of whom to start against Juventus: Bale or Benzema
Marca's is strongly in favour of Gareth Bale, and here is why:
"Although he hasn't said it openly, there's no doubt that Zinedine Zidane knows his Real Madrid line-up for Tuesday night in Turin. What happened against Las Palmas on Saturday in their 3-0 victory will not have influenced his decision."
"Karim Benzema has scored many goals since joining Real Madrid but has been wasteful this season and that won't create a major headache for Zidane. The fact that he only managed a penalty against a disappointing Las Palmas side wasn't too important given that Los Blancos won comfortably in the end. But to fail to make the most of chances on Tuesday against the Bianconeri would be very damaging for a Real Madrid that aren't getting tired of continually turning the other cheek."
"Having doubts between Benzema and Gareth Bale is a mortal sin, particularly when you are talking about playing away from home. Benzema, who has two goals from the penalty spot in his last eight games, is often trusted in such in big games. Bale, on the other hand, has been somewhat inconsistent lately but seems to be hitting top gear again."
"Las Palmas obviously were not at the races whatsoever, but in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale put the team on his back and carried them. That is a scenario which is unthinkable in the case of the Frenchman."
Should Zidane finally drop Benzema against Juventus?
