Karim Benzema does a ‘Van Basten’
Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema has scored 17 league goals this season. It would be safe to say that none of them come close to this one. The French striker opened the scoring for Los Merengues against Osasuna on Saturday evening with this stunning volley, with the assist coming from Cristiano Ronaldo after a typically mesmerising run down the wing.
Soccer aficionados will spot the similarity between this goal and Dutch legend Marco Van Basten’s wonder strike from the European Championships in 1988 – check the two out side by side here.
