Real may have lost 4-3 but Benzema tormented City’s defence throughout.
The Frenchman scored a superb first-time effort in the 33rd minute to reduce Real’s deficit to 2-1.
He then stole the headlines with an outrageous Panenka penalty to round out the scoring with eight minutes remaining.
The Argentine’s reactions to Benzema’s double were brilliant. View a video of them below…
Sergio Aguero's reaction after Karim Benzema's two goals against Manchester City yesterday:— 3ZOOZ LIVE HD (@3zlivehd) April 27, 2022
Damn, from one chance they scored, Karim Benzema is a crazy player. “
Aguero’s reaction to Benzema’s first goal
Just before Benzema’s first goal, Aguero can be seen laughing and joking with Balotelli. Seconds later, Benzema hits the back of the net and his delight turns to frustration.
He continued, per Sport: “Benzema is a crazy thing. You have to hug him in the area, not let him loose . Madrid has this, that he scores a goal out of nowhere.”
Aguero’s reaction to Benzema’s second goal
Aguero watches intently as Benzema steps up. The Frenchman produces a Panenka spot-kick and Aguero just puts his hands on his head in disbelief.
He added after his second goal, per Sport: “When you have all the confidence, you can do what you want, like Benzema. What a son of a thousand. Losing 4-2 and going and scoring a penalty.”
Aguero’s reaction to Phil Foden’s goal
Aguero has spoken highly of Phil Foden in the past and he was loving it when he got himself on the scoresheet just after half-time.
Hopefully Aguero broadcasts his reactions during the second leg as they made for brilliant viewing.
