Benzema Hat-Trick After Mbappe Opener Knocks PSG Out Of Champions League

Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick as Real Madrid fought back from two goals down on aggregate to reach the Champions League quarter-finals with a dramatic 3-1 second-leg win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Kylian Mbappe, wanted by Madrid, put PSG in total control of the last-16 tie by netting in the 39th minute at the Santiago Bernabeu after scoring the winner in the first leg.

But visiting goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma gifted Benzema a goal just after the hour mark. The Frenchman netted twice more in the space of two minutes late on as the PSG defence capitulated and Real progressed with a 3-2 aggregate triumph.
