In his penalty goal this Wednesday against City of Manchester at the Bernabeu Karim Benzema added 15 goals to the competition, in 11 games, two of the historic record he has scored Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2013-14 season and that seemed unattainable, until the French striker appeared to make an extraordinary campaign. Besides, Karim he equaled CR7 as the top scorer in the qualifying round with 10 goals, as the Portuguese did in the 2016-17 campaign.
43 goals in the 43 games he has played, with ten of them in the last five and yet, Benzema outstanding in all his performances in Champions League games at home. Three goals against Paris Saint-Germain to spin the round of 16, another battle Chelsea to prove the comeback, like this Wednesday against City of Manchester to put on real Madrid at the end of Paris held on May 28.
The data that heightens his legend on the white team and that makes him the second top scorer in club history, as he is only one of 323 scored by Raul Gonzalez Blanco.
An ease of scoring in the top club competition on the continental where he was accompanied by an unexpected actor, due to his insignificant involvement as a starter in the current campaign, but Rodrygo is going has a passion for Champions which escaped logic, but is reflected in the data.
The attacker has more goals (ten). Europe that in the games of LaLiga Santander (six), and it played 26 in European competition and 70 in domestic.
In addition, he included the role of the disgusting unparalleled in this campaign real Madrid. In the quarterfinals against Chelsea and after 1-3 in the first leg, the white team lost 0-3, and thankfully, and was eliminated from Championsuntil Rodrygo appeared to make a good pass outside, a home mark, from the Croatian Luka modric.
So, he forced the extension Benzema manages the resolution, a ‘dejavu’ experienced this Wednesday at Santiago Bernabeueven with greater difficulty.
Ang City of Manchester won 0-1 in madridista fiefdom and forgave up to two clear chances to double the advantage, it seems the magic will never be repeated a third time, but Rodrygo the opposite he thought.
Two goals in two minutes, 90 and 91 to drive his fans and the players into delirium, who resurrected in a tie when he seemed dead again, but the coffin was not nailed properly.
Ang real Madrid will play in the final of Champions on Saturday May 28 on a path they made behind the goals of Benzema Y Rodrygo and three knockout second legs to Santiago Bernabeu which after a year and a half closed to the public due to pandemic coronavirus and because of the works — which are still going on — he will remember as historic the nights lived on Paseo de la Castellana.
