Real Madrid 2 Monchengladbach 0: Benzema scores twice as Zidane's side top Champions League Group B to go through

December 10, 2020

REAL MADRID are through to the Champions League knockout stages as Karim Benzema put Borussia Monchengladbach to the sword.

The French striker scored twice to help Los Blancos to top spot in Group B, leapfrogging the previously free-scoring Germans.


It should have been even more comfortable than the 2-0 scoreline.

Zinedine Zidane's side had 19 shots at goal compared to Monchengladbach's seven.

Of that 18, six were on target, compared to the beaten opponent's one.

But there was still some good to come from the night for Monchengladbach despite defeat.

Inter Milan and Zenit drew 0-0 in the other Group B clash, that meant it was the Germans who finish second and progress.

It saw brilliant scenes at the Bernabeu at the final whistle as Monchengladbach players gathered around an iPhone to watch the dying moments of Inter versus Zenit.

But they must have been on a delay as that whistle had blown well before the Bundesliga side started their celebrations.

They will have to show a lot more than they did tonight as Real Madrid barely had to get out of first gear.
