Barcelona may have MSN, but the BBC of Real Madrid are nothing to look down upon. Benzema, Bale and Ronaldo all made an impact in El Clasico, but it was the Frenchman who had the biggest moment in todays match.
Shortly after Barcelona started the scoring with a Pique header, Benzema responded in gorgeous fashion. Marcelo made a beautiful move to the middle, and sent the ball out wide to Toni Kroos. The German attempted to first touch the ball into the middle, and it caught a deflection and popped right into the middle of the goal area. It was the perfect place for Benzema, who launched into a bicycle kick and sent the ball past Claudio Bravo.
Real Madrid may not be in the race for the league title, but a strong performance over Barcelona will certainly help the club moving forawrd. They are still alive in Champions League, and have a meeting with Wolfsburg in quarterfinal action later this week.
