Karim Benzema is on fire right now.
During Real Madrid’s Last 16 match against Paris-Saint Germain, the Frenchman was unstoppable, scoring a hat-trick in the second leg to guarantee the Spaniards advanced 3-1 on aggregate.
Los Blancos would have expected another difficult night at work if they had been drawn against Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in the competition’s quarter-final.
Ancelotti, on the other hand, would not have believed his good fortune.
Following a brace of headers in the first half of Wednesday’s first leg, Benzema has now completed his hat-trick thanks to some dubious defending by the home squad.
Benzema’s new performance makes him only the fourth player in Champions League history to score consecutive hat-tricks.
