Benzema signs two records in the match against Mönchengladbach

“While the dogs bark, the nine passes.” The phrase, written on a storie of the Benzema account hours after the game against Borussia, where his 'crack' broke out with Mendy on Vinicius, he comes to downplay to his words about the young Brazilian (“He does what he wants. Don't play with him, brother. Play against us”), to reject controversy that can arise from their comments, and that he only cares about what happens on the pitch.

But the match against Borussia leaves two new notches in the winners of the Lyon striker: with his goal in minute 87 became the second player to score in 16 consecutive seasons in the Champions League. Only Messi has surpassed him with the goal he achieved in the game against Hungarian Ferencvaros on the first day of this edition by converting a penalty.

But not only that, He also became the fourth player to score 30 different teams in the top European competition. (joining his goals with Olympique de Lyon with his twelve seasons in the white team), matching to players like Raúl, Messi and Cristiano, who have scored the same number of rivals (or outbid). Now comes Inter Milan, another team with which he can continue to extend his streak.
