Karim Benzema’s double in between, the first a header, the second a simple finish following a dreadful error from Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, put him on four goals in Champions League semi-finals.

Benzema Levels Messi

Having previously scored in the 2012/13 defeat to Borussia Dortmund and a year later in the first leg beating of Bayern Munich, it means the Frenchman now has as many strikes in this round as Lionel Messi.

Whereas the Barcelona star has four from 13 games, Benzema managed to reach the tally in just his 12th semi-final appearance.

Messi on the other side last scored in a champions league semi-final in 2014/15. He stole the show as the Blaugrana opened up a 3-0 first-leg lead, also versus Bayern, in 2014/15 and notched twice versus Madrid in 2010/11.
