Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema added yet another feather to his cap by equaling Cristiano Ronaldo’s record for most knockout stage goals in a single UEFA Champions League campaign.

The Frenchman achieved the incredible record during the second leg of Los Blancos’ semi-final clash against Manchester City. Having scored twice in the first leg last week, the 32-year-old scored a penalty in extra-time at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, May 4.

The goal was Benzema’s 10th in the knockout stages of this year’s Champions League. He went level with Ronaldo {as per The Sun}, who found the back of the net 10 times for Real Madrid during their run to the title in the 2016/17 season.

More importantly, Benzema’s penalty sealed a topsy-turvy encounter in Real Madrid’s favor to fire them into the Champions League final.

Following a 4-3 win at the Etihad last week, Man City looked the better side for much of the second leg at Santiago Bernabeu. They took a deserved lead through Algerian Riyad Mahrez in the 73rd minute to go by two goals advantage.

However, substitute Rodrygo scored in the 90th minute from a Benzema cutback before heading home Dani Carvajal’s cross barely a minute later to level the tie.

Benzema then won a penalty and converted it in the fifth minute of extra-time to seal the match 6-5 on aggregate and set up a summit clash with Liverpool on May 28.
