Real Madrid were again seriously heckled on Tuesday evening, on the lawn of Mönchengladbach (2-2). But the Merengue managed to snatch the draw thanks to Karim Benzema and Casemiro at the end of the match. The opportunity for the French to equal a record so far co-held by Ryan Giggs and Lionel Messi: the former Lyonnais has indeed scored in a 16th different season of the Champions League. Only the Welsh winger and the Barcelona genius had achieved such a performance before him. But KB9 and Messi are the only ones to have scored in 16 consecutive C1 editions.
16 – Karim @Benzema 🇫🇷 has scored in 16 different Champions League seasons (12 with Real Madrid and 4 with Lyon), no player does better (tied with Ryan Giggs & Lionel Messi). Legendary.#BMGRMA pic.twitter.com/wRpgInjk2w

” He plays against us “
Still, the former Lyonnais did not only stand out for this performance. A video showing him chatting with Ferland Mendy at the time of the return from the locker room may indeed make people talk. We see the striker talking to his left side about Vinicius Junior, in these terms: ” He does what he wants. Brother, don’t play with it! My mother’s life. He plays against us », He dropped in images captured by the channel Telefoot and then relayed. A funny way to re-motivate the troops to pick up the score.
🤬 “JUEGA CONTRA NOSOTROS” 🤬.
