Real Madrid: Benzema hits 100 Champions League games

Karim Benzema plays his 100th game in the Champions League for Real Madrid in the Last 16 first leg against Manchester City.

Benzema reaches 100

The French striker takes to the field in front of his home fans at the Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday evening knowing he is the attacker most relied upon at the club. Across his previous 99 games he has scored 52 goals, and will be looking for more to ensure compatriot Zinedine ZIdane has a lead to take back to the Premier League champions in the second leg.

Benzema becomes the sixth player for the club to make it to 100 matches in the competition. The others are Iker Casillas, Cristiano Ronaldo, Raúl, Roberto Carlos and Sergio Ramos, the defender who will be out on the pitch with him.
