A sensational Karim Benzema second half hat-trick saw Real Madrid turn around a dead fixture and knock Paris-Saint Germain out of the UEFA Champions League.

Los Blancos seemed to be outplayed for the majority of the first half but came together as a completely different side after the break to put up a performance for the ages.

In the process of scoring his hat-trick, Benzema became Real Madrid’s third-highest goalscorer after Cristiano Ronaldo and Raul. The Frenchman commented on this feat after the game, as relayed by Fabrizio Romano.

“I’m proud to be third best goalscorer in Real Madrid history but I won’t stop, I want to score again and again,” he said.

He then spoke about the never say “never” mentality in the team and made a special mention to the fans at the Bernabeu.

“Real Madrid are still alive and we’ll never give up. We’ve to say thanks to Real Madrid fans, they were special tonight.”

Carlo Ancelotti’s men displayed phenomenal character in the second half and proved to the world why they were one of the favourites to win it all. Despite Kylian Mbappe’s clinical night in front of goal, PSG had no way back into the fixture.

What was most remarkable was Real Madrid’s ability to score twice in two minutes. It was a lethal display in front of goal, especially from the French striker.

Ancelotti’s side are now through to the last eight in the competition. Alongside Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Manchester City, they are one of the favourites to go all the way.

Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia dreams of playing for Spanish giants Real Madrid, the winger’s father has revealed following the UEFA Champions League clash between the two teams last night.

Kvaratskhelia, 22, exploded upon arriving at Napoli last year, leading them to the Serie A title on the back of his explosive performances.

The Georgian winger has been impressing in the ongoing campaign as well, although he failed to score or assist in either of Napoli’s meetings with Real Madrid in the Champions League group stages.

Kvaratskhelia has previously spoken about how he has always been a lifelong supporter of Real Madrid and grew up idolising some of the club’s legends like Cristiano Ronaldo and Guti, among others.

Now, the 22-year-old winger’s father has revealed that his son has always dreamt of and continues to dream of playing for Real Madrid.

As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Kvaratskhelia’s father said: “Khvicha always dreamed and still dreams of playing for Real Madrid. I am sure about it.”

Talking about the fact that the winger got to play against Real Madrid, Kvaratskhelia’s father added: “For Khvicha, playing vs Real Madrid was special. In my family, everyone is a Real Madrid supporter, except me.”

Real Madrid are in the market for attacking reinforcements, but they are looking for a centre-forward next summer and have Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as their main targets.

As for Kvaratskhelia, whose market value stands at €85 million, it seems quite apparent that he harbours dreams of playing for Real Madrid. But it remains to be seen if there is some interest from Los Blancos in signing the winger.
