Luka Jovic stars as he replaces an injured Benzema in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Real Sociedad.

When an injured Karim Benzema was subbed off in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday night, the Serbian striker Luka Jovic was expected to come in and do little. Still, he impacted by providing an assist and then scoring the winner.

As Carlo Ancelotti’s side opened up an eight-point lead in LaLiga Santander, Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior opened the scoring, and Jovic’s goal ensured the points.

For Real Madrid’s fans and coaches, Jovic’s performance in the second half will have alleviated some of the fear that Benzema’s injury had caused.

Karim Benzema subbed off with a knee injury in the 17th minute in Real Sociedad’s clash.

In addition to Jovic’s assist for Vinicius’ goal, Jovic’s instinct to convert Casemiro’s header down from Luka Modric’s corner was impressive.

In light of Ancelotti’s lack of rotation at a season in which there are numerous matches, Benzema’s muscle injury at the Reale Arena did not come as a surprise but was expected earlier.

A similar problem may have occurred in the case of players like Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, or David Alaba.

Eder Militao was unquestionably Real Madrid’s player of the match, and he was imposing in the first half of the contest against Barcelona.

Two Real Sociedad goals were on the verge of being scored by the Brazilian in the opening 45 minutes, and he was a colossal presence in the center of defense.

Because of Militao’s performances this season, no one is even thinking about Raphael Varane, who joined Manchester United from Real Madrid this summer.

Real Madrid sits top of the table with 39 points, followed by Sevilla on 31 and Real Betis with 30 points after stealing a win against Barcelona.
