Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has been given the Champions League goal of the season award for his unique header against Chelsea.
It was a glorious move from Los Blancos, with Benzema playing a superb first time pass with the outside of his foot to Vinicius, and then getting on the end of the Brazilian’s cross to thump a perfectly guided header home.
In the end, the Blues would come roaring back and win at the Bernabeu – but it wouldn’t be enough to see them through to the final.
