Real Madrid legend praises Lewandowski, hails him as one of the best strikers


We are less than a week away from FC Barcelona going head to head with their arch-rivals Real Madrid in the season’s first El Clasico.

Without a doubt, the focal point of the fixture will be Robert Lewandowski, who will be playing his first competitive Clasico. His duel with Karim Benzema has left football fans licking their lips as we brace ourselves for an exciting contest.

Heading into this encounter, RM Castilla manager and former Real Marid superstar Raul has heaped praise on Lewandowski, even labelling him as one of the best strikers in world football.

The Spaniard also mentioned Benzema and Erling Haaland, as two other strikers currently on top of their game, adding (h/t Tele Diario): “Lewandowski, Benzema and Haaland are the best strikers in the world. They have the most goalscoring ability and contribute the most to their teams.”

Lewandowski joined Barcelona in the summer, after sending his eight-year spell at Bayern Munich. Since joining, the veteran goalscorer has racked up 12 goals in 11 competitive outings, helping Barcelona enjoy an excellent start to the domestic campaign.

In light of his success, Raul hailed the Polish international, though he backs Benzema to win the strikers’ contest in the upcoming Clasico this weekend.

“Lewandowski is a great signing for La Liga, he is showing his quality… But I hope Benzema wins the goalscoring battle on Sunday,” he added.

Benzema and Lewandowski are indeed set to light up Santiago Bernabeu this weekend, and their performances could go a long way in dictating their respective teams’ fate in this Clasico.

Lewandowski is currently leading the goalscoring charts with 12 goals, but having recently returned from an injury, Benzema is roaring to get back to scoring form. The Frenchman only has three league goals to his name so far, after featuring in five matches.
