Higuain wins the battle against Benzema

Gonzalo Higuain has started the season in great physical shape. Neither cross the ocean alters his scoring routines. He has scored two goals in two games with Argentina, which are added to the four he achieved in the five games played with Real Madrid in official competitions.

Higuain has scored six goal this season

His average scoring is the best of a Real Madrid player, ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo himself, who has five goals: one with Portugal (against Luxembourg), two in the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona and two in the league, against Granada. 'Pipita' has scored one more goal: two for his country, one in the Spanish Super Cup, which could be two or three more and three in the Spanish league. In the Spanish Championship, is all regularity: a goal a game.

A total of six goals in seven games. Even Leo Messi (one goal more in the season) surrenders to the effectiveness of his compatriot, who has hunted Luis Suarez leading the scoring charts in South American qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil: both have six goals, two more than Messi and three above Radamel Falcao, fashionable striker. The 'Tiger' now has eight goals, six with Atletico and two with Colombia, despite not scoring in the first matchday in Spain (the match Atletico-Betis was postponed because of the European Super Cup).

At Real Madrid, Higuain's figures contrast with those of Benzema. The Frenchman, a player with a more combinative football, contributed a significant amount of goals (31) in the last campaign, in which the white team broke all scoring records. However, this course has not yet scored: no goals for Real Madrid nor for his national team. In fact, Jose Mourinho has opted more for Higuain (the Argentinian has started four games with Real Madrid while Benzema only started two) at the time of making the white starting lineup. On Saturday, against Sevilla, Gonzalo Higuain, backed by his six goals, seems to have an advantage to start again.
