Real Madrid stage another massive comeback with Benzema in starring role


Real Madrid CF are proving time and time again that they are the comeback kings after launching another remarkable “remontada” against Sevilla on Sunday night. It also comes as no surprise that it was Karim Benzema who once again scored the stunning late winner in stoppage time.

Real Madrid found themselves 2-0 down at the half against Sevilla, but somehow managed to fight back to score three goals in the second half to win 2-3. The victory gives them another three points to add to their tally, and puts them 15 points clear of FC Barcelona, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, who are all currently tied in second to fourth place with 60 points each.

Barcelona have two games in hand, but even if they win those, the Blaugrana will need Real Madrid to drop 9 points to draw level. For now, as the closing stages of the season draw nearer, it looks like Real Madrid are keeping a tighter grip on the trophy.

The man that has been at the centre of the club’s success this season has no doubt been Karim Benzema. He has scored 39 goals in all competitions so far, and many of those have been decisive in securing late victories.
