Benzema has missed four penalties this season, two penalties from the spot against Alaves and Celta Vigo in the past month, he was also presented with three penalties against Celta Vigo, he scored two and missed one.

Some managers share the opinion that it is not good for a player to take two penalties in a match against the same goalkeeper but the stand-in Real Madrid captain has scored two from the spot in the past, this could just be a psychological battle that he lost against Hererra.

Benzema only lost the opportunity to add to his goal tally against Osasuna, he did every other thing well and Real Madrid still bags the three points in the 3-1 win at El- Sadar Stadium, Los Blancos is just a few points away to clinch the La Liga title with five games left.
