Thanks to his solo performance against Granada, Ferland Mendy became the 22nd player to score for Real from the beginning of the 2019-2020 season.
Coach Zidane used 26 players from the start of the season. Except for midfielder Eder Militao, full-back Alvaro Odriozola, who moved to Bayern, and two goalkeepers Thibaut Courtois, Alphonse Areola, the remaining 22 players all scored at least one goal.
Karim Benzema is currently leading Real’s scoring list from the beginning of the season, with 24 goals. Center-back captain Sergio Ramos is second, with 12 goals. 19-year-old striker Rodrygo came in third, with seven goals.
Counting only in La Liga, Mendy is the 21st player to score for Real in the 2019-2020 season. The French defender needed 23 matches to score the first time.
Not owning a high scoring performance like Ramos, but Mendy’s “first” was enough to satisfy fans. The 25-year-old left-back shone through a solo display through two players, before shooting a narrow angle that hit the top of Granada’s net.
Mendy’s table was also important, with Benzema doubling the lead to help the team win 2-1. Thanks to Barca four points ahead of the last two rounds, Real only need to win one more game to win.
Mendy joined Real from Lyon in the summer of 2019. The transfer contract comes with a fee of up to $ 59 million. The 25-year-old defender played four matches for France.
