Karim Benzema gave Real Madrid the lead in Seville with a perfectly executed header.
The Frenchman lost Diego Carlos in the Sevilla penalty area before leaping to guide Dani Carvajal’s cross back past Tomas Vaclik and into the back of the net.
The goal puts Benzema up alongside Gerard Moreno as one of the top scorers in LaLiga Santander this season with five.
This was Benzema’s 35th goal in all competitions over the last two seasons, proving that he really has stepped up in Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence.Carvajal’s role in this goal can’t be underestimated, as his attacking qualities were on show with his pinpoint dink towards Benzema from the byline.
