Benzema has scored 15 goals in 29 games without Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo

Far too many times this season has BBC failed to play together due to injuries, suspension or rotation, and against Eibar, Zinedine Zidane will be without Gareth Bale (suspended) and Cristiano Ronaldo (rested) once again, so Benzema will have to step up.

Ever since the trio have shared a dressing room in 2013/14, in 211 matches total, only 29 have been without two of the three attacking components.

Without Alvaro Morata, also missing out due to a booking, Benzema will have to lead the way on his own.

In 29 of those appearances, he has 15 goals to his name, scoring in 10 of those games, five of which were braces.

The match outcomes have been mostly positive, with 20 victories, four draws and five defeats for Real, although the margin of error is thin as the domestic league campaign reaches its climax.

In the three games Benzema has played in this season without Bale or Ronaldo, he has netted twice, once against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey and once against Espanyol in LaLiga.
