16 goals in 32 matches, Mariano’s stats with Lyon are beyond expectations.
Mariano left Real Madrid where he was only a substitute, but when he arrived in France, he showed potential and is the undisputed leader of Lyon.
After 32 matches, he has scored 16 goals, a fantastic average (0.50 goals per match), so Mariano scores every second match. 14 goals were scored by the 24-year-old only in Ligue 1.
Benzema, who is main striker in Real Madrid and even removed Mariano from the team has scored only six goals – 2 in La Liga, terrible statistics and criticism for the French already come from fans.
