Champions League: Benzema equals Messi’s record

Published

on

Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, on Tuesday night equalled Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi’s Champions League goal record.

Benzema reached Messi’s Champions League goal record after scoring a goal in Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw against Monchengladbach.

His goal against Monchengladbach means the 32-year-old France international has now scored in 16 consecutive Champions League seasons.

Benzema and Messi are now the only two players in Champions League history to score a goal in sixteen straight seasons, ESPN reports.

Meanwhile, Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs also scored in 16 Champions League seasons, but he did it non-consecutively.

Benzema will now hope to lead Real Madrid to victory when they host Huesca in the La Liga fixture this weekend.
