Real Madrid attacking pair Ronaldo and Benzema now worst attack in club's history

Real Madrid's front two of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema among the worst attacking pairs in Europe this season.

Ronaldo and Benzema have managed just one goal apiece so far this campaign.

Of the 98 clubs in LaLiga, the Premier League, Ligue 1, the Bundesliga and Serie A, only the two strikers of Benevento, who lie bottom of the Italian league, have a worse record.

Never before have Real had an attacking pair that have just netted twice in 12 LaLiga games but interestingly Ronaldo and Benzema also have the record for most goals with 27 during the 2014-15 season.

In the 1942-43 and 1984-85 seasons, the pairs of Alonso and Botella, and Santillana and Butragueno, both had three goals at this stage.
