Both teams waited until December 1 for the clash. The decisive action of the match took place in the 40th minute. After passing Croatia’s Luka Modric, Benzema scored an empty goal.

The experienced forward gave the Real fans joy again, chanting “Benzema is Balon d’Or” during the match. The club from Madrid were disappointed that the French did not win the gold ball – he was fourth in the “French football” poll, after Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Jorgenho.
Real Madrid, who have won their fifth consecutive league, have 36 points, seven more than Atletico and Real Sociedad, but Diego Simeone’s side are still late. Athletic Eighth – 20 points.
