VIDEO: Watch the Benzema Penalty Everyone is Raving About!

The first leg semi-final contest between Manchester United and Real Madrid had everything you could dream of in a blockbusting encounter. One of the moments fans are raving about is the ice-cold penalty Benzema took in the 82nd minute of the game.

Real Madrid were behind 4-2 when Aymeric Laporte handled the ball in the box and penalty was given. It was a moment that would make any footballer nervous but that was not the case for the French international.

Karim Benzema stepped up to deliver a fantastic Panenka that sent shockwaves round the Etihad. The fans that were whistling went quiet in disbelief.

City will take a slender lead (4-3) to the Bernabeu next Wednesday after a thrillingly encounter at the Etihad. Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti, with five European Cups between them, might as well have popped down the boozer and had a night off. 

The throbbing tempo, the breath-taking quality, the hare-brained defending, the absence of any discernible structure made this an extraordinary night. It was brilliant. You couldn’t take your eyes off it and you sure as hell couldn’t explain it.
