Another Benzema Hat Trick Gives Madrid Edge Over Chelsea

Written by 07 April, 2022
Karim Benzema is almost single-handedly keeping the Spanish giants on the path to a record-extending 14th European Cup — and a fifth for himself — and powering them to regaining the La Liga title. Back-to-back Champions League hat tricks just reinforce the enduring value of the France international’s clinical finishing to Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti sees so much more being provided by the 34-year-old forward he compares to a fine wine. This latest goal burst could end Chelsea’s title defense, barring the type of second-leg collapse by Madrid that Paris Saint-Germain endured last month at the the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. Benzema now has 37 goals in 36 games in all competitions this season, including the three that turned around the last-16 meeting with PSG. Of Madrid’s last 11 goals, 10 have been scored by the mainstay of the team for the last 13 years. The first two at Stamford Bridge…

Written by 06 April, 2022
Manchester City defeated Atletico Madrid 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Tuesday, thanks to Kevin De Bruyne's goal. After a tense 70 minutes, City finally broke through Atletico's tenacious defense, aided by Phil Foden's vision. Foden slid in a fine throughball and De Bruyne raced through to fire in a low shot from a tight angle just 79 seconds after coming off the bench. The first half was played at a slow pace, with City controlling the majority of the ball but failing to create chances despite having all of its outfield players in the final third at times. De Bruyne and Joao Cancelo both had efforts deflected wide, and Aymeric Laporte's header was off target. Ilkay Gundogan shot wide, and Rodri had a long-range effort blocked before De Bruyne's penalty appeal was denied, and John Stones also missed. It wasn't until the second half…

Ancelotti tested positive for the coronavirus last week and did not accompany the rest of the squad to London on Tuesday. There was a possibility he could still make it for Wednesday’s match if he tests negative in time to travel. Ancelotti had already missed the team's 2-1 victory over Celta Vigo in the Spanish league on Saturday, when his son, assistant coach Davide Ancelotti, was in charge. Ancelotti, who had mild COVID-19 symptoms, is attempting to win his second Champions League with Real Madrid after helping the club win the European trophy in 2014. Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy, who returned to action on Saturday after being sidelined with injuries, practiced normally in preparation for the trip to England. Last season, Madrid was knocked out…
