Karim Benzema is the headline name in this week’s FUT Team of the Week. The Frenchman has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent times and saw his efforts rewarded on Sunday as he helped his Real Madrid side to a 4-2 win away from home against Espanyol.
Not only did he get the opening goal, he got Madrid’s third on the stroke of half-time, which proved to be the difference between the teams.
Raphael Guerreiro of Borussia Dortmund is the sole player from the Bundesliga to make it into the starting XI, while there are three Serie A representatives in the form of Juventus’ Joao Cancelo, Atalanta’s Alejandro Gomez and Sampdoria forward Fabio Quagliarella.
Leeds midfielder Mateusz Klich is the highlight player among the reserves.
