Karim Benzema's majestic hat-trick 

his second in as many Champions League games

He gave Real Madrid a memorable 3-1 victory over Chelsea 

sometimes ragged game at Stamford Bridge,

 Benzema’s sheer expertise was thrillingly decisive.

He gave Madrid the lead in the 21st minute by header

Three minutes later Benzema scored another majestic header

Chelsea had renewed hope at half-time,

 but it was shattered in the first minute of the second half

when a loose pass from Edouard Mendy allowed Benzema to roll the ball into the empty net
