Three Players To Watch Out For In Euro 2020 From Real Madrid

One of the biggest international football extravaganzas is almost upon us as the Euro 2020 will be kicking off in a few days’ time. With the European powerhouses all set to explode upon each other with an exotic brand of football amongst themselves, this tournament will be a massive determining factor for the clubs to seal off important transfer deals just ahead of the next summer window. It won’t be any different for Real Madrid as the club seeks to make a major overhaul this summer.


As we talk about the powerhouses colliding with each other, this story will be an ode to the top three players from Real Madrid who will be plying their trade in the imminent intercontinental campaign. This won’t be a number-driven piece but will depend a lot on the impact that those players can have and the amount of damage they can inflict upon their opponents.

1. Karim Benzema

Benzema had a scintillating season that made Didier Deschamps reiterate his name for the French squad just ahead of Euro 2020. He led the Los Blancos attacking unit and from the 34 games in La Liga this season, he managed to bag 23 goals and string 9 assists. He played a whopping 2902 minutes in the elite league of Spain. He also played a significant role in the Champions League that saw him smashing 6 gals from the 10 fixtures that he played. The entire season saw him grabbing 30 goals from 46 appearances which will be a massive boost for the French outfit’s attacking force.


2. Thibaut Courtois

Courtois will be an imperative bulwark under the woodwork of Belgium. His towering presence has bailed out Los Merengues on countless occasions. In the ongoing season, he managed to keep 17 clean sheets in La Liga while in the Champions League he successfully wrung out 4 clean sheets. From the 51 games that he played, he slated 21 clean sheets while considering goals. Madrid had a questionable defence in the preceding season and things didn’t go as planned for them at all. Belgium will be banking heavily upon him to take guard under the sticks.

3. Toni Kroos

The German midfielder will be an important man for their aspirations with their attacking unit needing a good boost from the midfield. Toni Kroos has an eye for long passes and the accuracy is way too scary for his counterparts. His last year’s free-kick against Sweden is another important reason why this big midfielder will be industrious for the German plans. This season has seen him grabbing 10 assists and bang in 3 goals in La Liga while he has also managed to string 3 assists in UCL. His ubiquitous presence in the midfield changes the dynamics of the German team. He also has a knack for shooting that makes him an extremely dangerous player to be in the field without proper defending.
