Real Madrid was all fired up as they returned to action in Laliga on Sunday. With Barcelona extending their lead at the summit with a win last night, Real Madrid needed to win against Valladolid to have a slim chance at a comeback for the title.
Real Madrid captain, Karim Benzema was unstoppable as he led the team to a 4-0 victory in the first half. Rodrygo opened the scoring for Los Blancos but a 7-minute hat-trick from Benzema took the game away from Valladolid.
The striker was assisted twice by Vinicius as he scored in the 29th, 32nd, and 36th minutes. The Frenchman has now set two new records.
For the first time in his Real Madrid career, Karim Benzema has now scored an afirst-halff hat trick for the club. Benzema has now scored 354 goals for the club.
Also, Karim Benzema has scored the fastest La Liga hat-trick by a Real Madrid player since Fernando Hierro in 1992.
