Benzema hit a sad milestone at Real 1Benzema hit a sad milestone at Real 1

In the 51st minute of the match at El Sadar Stadium, Real received a penalty when Ezequiel Avila used his hand to block Rodrygo’s turn.

Benzema was disappointed after kicking the second penalty in just seven minutes of the match against Osasuna on April 20.

Therefore, Benzema became the first player to miss two penalties in one match in La Liga, after Raúl Tamudo in the match against Betis in April 2006.

Before the match against Osasuna, Benzema missed a kick in the 2-2 draw with Elche in round 22 of La Liga in January. At that time, he aimed for the top right corner, but the ball flew over the bar.

In the 2-1 win at Celta Vigo in round 30 earlier this month, Benzema even kicked three penalties.

After Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos left, Benzema took on the responsibility of taking penalties for Real from this season.

Herrera became the first goalkeeper to save two penalties in one match in La Liga, after Sergio Asenjo in the match against Getafe in February 2018.

However, Herrera’s excellence did not help Osasuna win even a single point.
