Karim Benzema’s first header against Premier League heavyweights Chelsea was crowned Champions League Goal of the Season, a huge honor for the Frenchman.
Chelsea met Real Madrid in the opening leg of the Champions League quarterfinal at Stamford Bridge, where the Blues were defeated 3-1, causing disappointment among Chelsea supporters.
Karim Benzema hit a fantastic header in that Champions League match that goalkeeper Mendy was unable to save.
The header has been rated as the best in this year’s Champions League competition, according to a report on GOAL.
Karim Benzema and his teammates then defeated Premier League champions Manchester City in the semifinals before defeating Liverpool in the final to claim the trophy.
As things stand, many football fans and pundits believe Karim Benzema should win the Ballon d’Or award in 2022.
