Karim Benzema is on absolute fire.

The Frenchman was unstoppable against Paris-Saint Germain during Real Madrid’s Last 16 tie, scoring an emphatic hat-trick in the second leg to ensure the Spainards progressed 3-1 on aggregate.

Drawn against Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in the competition’s quarter-final, Los Blancos would have expected another tough night at the office.

Ancelotti wouldn’t have been able to believe his luck though.

After netting a brace of headers in the first half of Wednesday’s first leg, Benzema has since completed his hat-trick following some questionable defending from the home team.

Benzema’s latest achievement now sees him become just the fourth player to score successive hat-tricks in the Champions League.
