What a goal! Karim Benzema showed why he’s one of the most feared strikers in the world by scoring a classic overhead kick against Barcelona on Apr. 2. Click to see Karim’s amazing piece of skill.
You don’t save those! Karim Benzema, 28, is one of the best players on the planet. A handsome striker that once dated Rihanna, 28, and has scored goals for fun for Real Madrid and France. However, not many were better than the goal he scored against Barcelona in El Clasico on Apr. 2!
As the cross came in from wide, the ball took a nasty deflection off a Barcelona defender and spun in the air. Karim was quickest to react, adjusting his body before flinging himself in mid-air.
The connection was just beautiful as he pulled off a technically flawless overhead kick, smashing the ball past Barça goalie, Claudio Bravo. It was certainly bravo indeed, Karim!

Earlier in the game, Barcelona drew first blood when Gerard leapt like a salmon out of the water and headed the ball home from a corner. Before that, it was a scrappy affair, with rarely any goalmouth action. But as soon as Barcelona scored, that brought Real out of their shell and they instantly replied within minutes to make it 1-1.
It’s just like Karim to overshadow the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez — who all would’ve been proud of such a wonder strike!
