On Wednesday despite the come-from-behind draw by Borussia Dortmund, one Real Madrid player stood tall, Karim Benzema.

The French forward scored two goals in the match - the first in the 28th minute, when he latched on to a pass from Daniel Carvajal and the second when he got on the end of a sublime cross from James Rodriguez eight minutes into the second stanza.

That second goal took him to 50 UEFA Champions League in 91 matches.
