Football is a lot bigger than scoring and defending. It is a game of skill, finesse, and valor. It is a sport of passing-masters and ball-carriers, a game that rewards the brave.
Real Madrid, the most prestigious club in the world, have been fortunate enough to field many world-class footballers over the years. Some of them have not only influenced the game with passes and goals but also their unmatched dribbling skills.
Here, we will take a look at five Real Madrid players of the century who have been rather difficult to handle for defenders. Now, without further ado, let us check out Real Madrid’s top five dribblers of the 21st century.
Special mentions: Marcelo, Angel Di Maria, Arjen Robben
#5 Karim Benzema
Benzema famously dribbled past Atletico Madrid’s staunch backline in the second leg of the 2016-17 UEFA Champions League semi-final to set up Isco’s goal. Real Madrid secured a 4-2 aggregate win and went on to reach the finals, thanks to Benzema’s out-of-the-world ball control.
