Real Madrid star poses for photo during Cup match

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema took time out from his side's 0-0 draw against Olimpic Xativa to pose for a photo for a female fan.

The Frenchman was happy to be snapped by the lucky supporter, as the Segunda B side managed to earn a creditable result and force a replay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

It says much for the quality of the match that Benzema's photo moment was one of the highlights, but it really did catch people by surprise - including the Xativa players, who seemed far from happy at the 25-year-old's delaying tactics.

Indeed, the game was deep into injury-time when the incident occurred, and either side could have still won the match. With that in mind, Benzema was perhaps lucky to avoid a yellow card.

And, the club's management and supporters are unlikely to be impressed either, after he'd failed to breach the defence of the lowly third-tier team.
