Real Madrid fans have expressed their dissatisfaction with Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema following their poor displays against Real Sociedad on Sunday, 29 January.

The Spanish giants dropped two crucial points as they played out a disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Real Sociedad.

Los Blancos' fans believe that their team would have been able to grind out a comfortable win if they were a bit clinical against their opponents.

As such, the duo of Vinicius Junior and Benzema has been singled out by the fans following their poor performance in front of the goal.

Both players were guilty of missing clear-cut chances that would have guaranteed Real Madrid a win at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Here is a look at some of the tweets critical of the two players:

@theMadridZone Would been an easy win if Vini wasn’t the worst finisher in world football
@theMadridZone Someone needs to sit Vinicius down and speak some senses into his head
@theMadridZone Sell bumzema. HE IS FINISHED
@theMadridZone That sucks we've probably lost the league
@theMadridZone Ship Vini to somalina abeg.

In the match against Real Sociedad, Karim Benzema could manage just one shot on target. He just won three out of nine ground duels and lost possession 13 times.

Vinicius Junior, on the other hand, had three shots on target and one off it, but missed two good chances at scoring. Off the six crosses that he gave, not one was on the mark. He also lost possession a massive 27 times and won only 11 of 23 duels he engaged in.

Carlo Ancelotti had warned about Real Madrid's opponents Real Sociedad

Carlo Ancelotti had admitted prior to their La Liga home clash against Real Sociedad that he is wary of Imanol Alguacil's team.

La Real are currently in impressive form and had been tipped to give Ancelotti's team a lot of headaches at the Bernabeu.

They suffered just one defeat in 11 games across all competitions prior to their La Liga clash away to defending champions Real Madrid.

Speaking before the game in a press conference, Carlo Ancelotti described the in-form Spanish side as a dynamic team. In his words, as seen in Tribal Football, he said:

"Real [Sociedad] are playing very well and have a good dynamic. We have to improve in the first half. After what happened against Atleti, it's important to play a complete game offensively and defensively."

He further reflected on Ream Madrid's emphatic 3-1 home victory against rivals Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey.

"It was a competitive, even match. I think we deserved to win on our side. The rest is something I'm not going to talk about."

The result of this match has shown that Ancelotti was spot on with his estimation of Real Sociedad. Los Blancos had more possession (61 percent), more shots at goal (20 to 8), more shots on target (seven to three), more big chances (two), and more corners (10 to 3) in the game.

However, La Real managed to make as many as 24 tackles and 33 clearances. This allowed them to come away with split points from a match which Real Madrid had done better in, at least, statistically.
