Chelsea vs. Real Madrid results, highlights

Karim Benzema sensationally made it back-to-back Champions League hat-tricks

Real Madrid won 3-1 at Chelsea in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Benzema’s treble saw Madrid remarkably defeat Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round and he was back at his brilliant best at Stamford Bridge.

The 34-year-old applied the perfect combination of power and direction to Vinicius Junior’s cross to beat Edouard Mendy in the 21st minute

Before ghosting between Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen to deftly guide Luka Modric’s centre into the corner.

Benzema still had lots to do but somehow planted a head high into the net from 16 yards

When Modric found him in the 24th minute, he did not need to apply any power at all and cushioned the ball back the way it came into the corner.
