PARIS, May 27 (Benin News) –

He also scored in the home and away match against City, with a superb finish from Mendy’s cross and a “Panenka” penalty that silenced Al Ittihad, and was decisive again by turning the penalty kick to 3-1 to take Los. The Blancos reached the Champions League final after four years.
In addition to having 17 goals for Cristiano Ronaldo on the horizon, the French “9” will have another record on the horizon, as with his 10 goals in crosses in this Champions League, he is also tied with the Portuguese, who reached this number in 2016. -2017 And if he manages to score only one goal in Paris, he will be the first player to score more than ten goals in competition crosses.
Besides, Benzema can also boast of being the Champions League top scorer behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi. The French scored 86 goals in the tournament, while the Portuguese is the all-time top scorer with 140 goals, and the Argentine is second on the podium with 125 goals.
