Real Madrid will play Liverpool in the final of the Champions League. A fantastic turn around vs. Man City made it possible to see Karim Benzema again as he becomes a threath for his opponents.
Not the youngest player anymore and his remarkable return to fantastic form makes you again believe that 30 is the new 25 among footballers as the game is turning into something that makes it possible for a 34 year old to peak his performance.
Benzema’s 3-1 goal vs. Man City will see Real Madrid in the final and Liverpool needs to be at their sharpest to keep this new born forward away from their goal as Alisson will be a key to any result for The Reds.
His goal vs. Man City was the 15th scored so far in this tournament. The record still belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo who netted 17 in 2013/14. He scored a hat-trick vs. PSG, four goals over two games vs. Chelsea and then three against Man City.
After the game Gary Lineker wrote on his twitter that the only obvious from this semi-final clash was Karim Benzema scoring.
This has been an amazing journey as the way to the final was far from an easy ride. Of course opponents are major clubs all over in the knock out rounds and to see Karim Benzema so influential comes down to fantastic management by Carlo Ancelotti.
Benzema has since arriving at Real Madrid from Lyon in 2009 played a total of 602 games and scored 322 goals. A fantastic record as he chases them all in the final vs. Liverpool.
