Real Madrid asked its fans a question to its fans after French striker Karim Benzema saved the team from defeat in Derby, the capital, against Atletico Madrid, on Sunday, by scoring the equalizer in a deadly time for the match.
The official account of Real Madrid in Arabic on Twitter published pictures of Benzema’s celebration of scoring the equalizer in the 88th minute in the match, which ended in a 1-1 draw, commenting on it by asking the fans: “What do you say to the government?”

The tweet received a wide participation from Arab fans of Real Madrid fans, as opinions differed between praising the French striker “savior” and praising his brilliance in big matches, and those who attacked him for his frequent wasting of opportunities.
“He is the most amazing thing,” said the singer Ahmed Mohamed, in response to Real Madrid’s question. While another criticized Benzema, saying, “We are happy with the goal of a draw after more than one missed opportunity and we call it the government.”
Atletico Madrid are leaders, with 59 points.

Benzema is dubbed “the government” by Arab fans because of his strong relationship with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and his untouchable position in the attack by coach Zinedine Zidane, for his great confidence in his abilities and potential.
Benzema had missed Real Madrid’s last three games before the derby match, due to an injury he suffered, as he clearly suffered from scoring goals in his absence.
He is the most amazing, and despite the injury that was still affecting his touch of the ball, he came at the right time.
From the first moment until the last moment, I am completely confident that the Real will win. It is true that the second goal did not come, but with the Real, even in the worst circumstances, there is no sense in despair. https://t.co/NeAFDAsIuM

I say thank him very much, legend.#Thank you_Benzema
I was the best player in Real with Casemiro and Courtois.
God willing, the performance will improve for the better in the next matches.#Hala Madrid https://t.co/ghin6gUXJX
