Karim Benzema did a great job against Chelsea tonight and he gave Real Madrid an early lead with the French forward scoring a brace in 24 minutes of the game.
The French forward has done extremely well in the UEFA Champions League tournament this season.
He returned back to the Stamford Bridge looking dangerous, after losing against the blues in the Semi finals.
Benzema joins Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski as he set a new Champions League record tonight.
Benzema new champions league record
The Real Madrid captain became the fourth player to score 80 UEFA Champions League goals. Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski are the first three players to reach the milestone.
Benzema is now regarded as the best striker in the world and he kept doing wonders in the La Liga and UEFA Champions League.
He is living the dream and I think that this is his best ever season and he is enjoying life.
How many goals has Benzema scored this season?
He has so far scored 36 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid and he still has a lot of games left to play.
Karim came close in winning the Ballon D’Or award last year and I believe that he will win the prestigious award if he continue with his fine performances.
He has linked up well with Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior and they are regarded as the best duo in the La Liga.
Benzema wants his International teammate Kylian Mbappe to join him at Real Madrid next season.
The deal came close last summer, but Paris Saint Germain turned down Real Madrid’s offer for the striker.
He has a few months left on his current contract with Paris Saint Germain and he is eligible to leave as a free agent.
