Benzema Scores Yet Another Hat-Trick Setting Real Madrid for UCL Prowess

Karim Benzema scored yet another hat-trick in their game against Chelsea, setting Real Madrid for UEFA Champions League prowess. Benzema is in his prime and we can expect more stellar performances from him. He also fits in so well in his team Real Madrid, with a beautiful chemistry with the players that ensures the passes come in flawlessly.

UCL Quarter Finals: Real Madrid 3-1 Chelsea

In their game on Wednesday, Benzema scored a hat-trick rallying Real Madrid to a 3-1 win against Chelsea. Chelsea’s lone goal came from Kai Havertz.

Benzema is undoubtedly in his prime having scored two hat tricks so far in the UEFA Champions League. Benzema’s hat-trick against Chelsea was the first against ‘the blues’ in UCL history.

Why Real Madrid is Such a Good Fit for Benzema

Real Madrid has become the perfect team for Benzema as it combines legacy with an intent to steer and evolve into the future. Real also has a team that flows so flawlessly together giving their attack an advantage. Their right and left flanks are well manned and their midfield is sturdy, not forgetting an ever impenetrable defense. Real Madrid has also gotten an opportunity to shine and hone its skills ever since the downfall of Spanish giants Barcelona FC. We also do forget that Real Madrid is a well-monied team that has the ability to invest amicably in its squad and play.

What Led to Chelsea’s Loss in the UCL Quarter Final First Leg?

Chelsea, as the defending champions of the UEFA Champions League, are under increasing pressure to perform and retain their title win. The team is well structured to do so but seems to have a lapse in their defensive capabilities. We feel that Chelsea overly depends on their goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy, maybe leaving the defense a little porous thinking that Mendy will easily sort everything out himself. Mendy is an impeccable goalkeeper but he needs an equally better defense to perform well. Benzema’s last goal was actually a result of an error by Mendy. Needless to say, we think Mendy is overwhelmed as the keeper with an all-trusting and somewhat porous defense.

Chelsea: An Impeccable Team that Only Needs a Little Tweaking

Overall, Chelsea have been performing very well at both the UCL and Premier League and we see no reason why they cannot turn their loss around in the second leg of the UCL quarter-finals. They have an impeccable team and a lineup that would successfully take on and defeat any club in the world. What they need is a little bit more morale and a sharpening of their skills both defensively and in the attack.
