Karim Benzema scored a stunning bicycle kick for Real Madrid to complete a remarkable seven-minute hat-trick vs Valladolid in La Liga.
With Madrid already three goals to the good, Rodrygo received the ball on the far right touchline and floated a ball into the box only for Benzema to pull off a magical finish.
Benzema is known for being one of the best strikers in world football and this was a finish that any player would be proud to score.

Remarkably, the Frenchman netted three times in just seven minutes against Valladolid.
The first came in the 29th minute and was assisted by Vinicius Junior. The Brazilian fed a ball into the box and Benzema put the ball in the back of the net with a diving header.
Then, just three minutes later, the 35-year-old scored again with another brilliant goal, courtesy of a sublime strike from outside the box.

The bicycle kick then came in the 36th minute to round off a truly remarkable spell of play.
Madrid had such control of the game that they were 4-0 up by half-time, with Rodrygo notching the other goal of the game.
Despite Madrid’s impressive showing, it’s still unlikely that they’ll retain their La Liga title this season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are still 12 points behind Barcelona and, after Sunday’s game, will have played the same number of matches as their rivals.
Benzema, however, still has a chance of winning the Golden Boot once again. The Frenchman started the day with 14 league goals but has now moved level with Barca’s Robert Lewandowski on 17.
The 35-year-old has faced injury problems this campaign and has not been quite as prolific as he was last year, but he remains one of the most deadly finishers in world football.
His impressive hat trick against Valladolid was yet more evidence of this and with 11 La Liga games still to go, it may not be his last of the season.
