Karim Benzema produced an incredible assist for Casemiro during Espanyol vs Real Madrid.
It looked as though the scores would be level at half-time as Zinedine Zidane’s side struggled to break down their opponents.
That was until Benzema produced something special.
He controlled the ball with his back to goal and somehow produced an incredible backheel through the defender’s legs and into the path of Casemiro, who finished.
What an amazing assist.
Benzema’s moment of magic could prove to be very important.
After Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo on Saturday, Real have the chance to go two points clear at the top of table with a win against bottom club Espanyol.
In truth, Real were struggling to break down their opponents in the first half. That was until Benzema did THAT.
However, was it even the best assist in La Liga of the day?
Earlier, we showed you how Santi Cazorla cushioned a long punt up field into the path of Gerard Moreno, who volleyed home against Valencia.
Cazorla or Benzema – who you got?
Back to Benzema and the Frenchman is currently having a superb season, scoring 17 league goals in his 30 appearances so far.
Against Valencia last week, he bagged a brace including a quite sensational left-footed volley.
With Benzema in this kind of form, you have to say Real Madrid are favourites for the title.
