The ball is always looking for him: Benzema scores 1-0 for Real Madrid vs. Athletic [VIDEO]

It doesn’t matter where you are on the field, it looks like you have a magnet towards the ball. Karim Benzema was in charge of opening the scoring in the duel between Real Madrid and Athletic Club at the Bernabéu for LaLiga Santander, after a great action in which the ‘whites’ arrived with enough players to the area of ​​the Bilbao team, so that the French striker remains ‘sweet’ in the face of the goal.

A ball to Vinicius Junior started the play. The Brazilian faced on the left wing and combined with Modric as a ‘taco’. ‘Vini’ continued almost through the center of the area’s balcony, where Asensio appeared, who tried a shot on goal, which was stopped by Unai Simon.

However, the rebound reached the feet of Modric, who fumbled his shot, but for the interests of Real Madrid, the ball, which always looks for Benzema, reached the right boot of the ‘Gato’, which he defined at will for the first of the meeting.
