Another historical feat was made on Wednesday night as Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema scored in his 15th consecutive Champions League game.
18-year-old Rodrygo also netted a hat-trick for the Spanish giants to stun Galatasaray 6-0.
Benzema became the second player after Messi to achieve the historical feat when he scored after Rodrygo’s two goals in the early 4th and 7th minute and Sergio Ramos scored a penalty at the 14th minute.
Then Rodrygo scored a late goal, his third in the match, after Benzema’s second goal in the 81st minute.
The victory ensures Los Blancos are on their way to the round of 16 while Galatasaray will end their competition in the group stage.
Despite losing 3-0 to PSG at the opening game and a home draw against Club Bruges, Real Madrid is now second in Group A with just two more games to go.
