Kevin Gameiro's entrance to the pitch couldn't have been more unfortunate for Valencia in the match against Real Madrid.
The French striker had replaced Maxi when he lost a ball in the middle of the field that led to a very clear counter in favor of the white team. Hazard took advantage of the gift to enable Benzema against Cillessen and the Frenchman defined without haste.
Real Madrid had pressed the accelerator in the second half after seeing themselves against the clock in the first, with a goal cancelled out by VAR to Rodrigo Moreno for a positional offside by Maxi.
In spite of everything, Valencia had resisted and just when Albert Celades wanted to refresh the team, the white goal arrived. Benzema had had a very grey performance until he found himself with this punctual play in which he found no opposition to score the goal.
