Benzema makes history with hat-trick vs Barcelona

Benzema makes history for Real Madrid with hat-trick in El Clásico

The French striker was quite accurate in front of goal to help Los Merengues reach the Copa del Rey final for the first time since the 2013-14 season.

Real Madrid have made quite a statement in the return leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals against Barcelona, where their main man stepped up to show his true colors in a crunch tie against their bitter rivals.

It will be a date that will live in history for Los Merengues, as Karim Benzema and Vinicius destroyed Barcelona's ironclad defense with four goals. The Brazilian ace scored the opener for Ancelotti's men, while Benzema capped an impressive performance by the Spanish capital side with a hat-trick in the second half of the clash.

The Frenchman, who scored his second hat-trick in four days (he bagged three against Valladolid in La Liga), managed to earn one more milestone in his magnificent career with the La Liga titans, with his goals matching a couple of records when facing the Blaugrana side.

The first one has to do with scoring a hat-trick against Barcelona in any venue, something that had been quite a hurdle to overcome for Los Blancos' footballers in almost 30 years.

Then, scoring a hat-trick against Els Culers at Camp Nou was no easy feat, and Benzema has joined some elite company with his performance today.

The French player will now be able to brag about a milestone not even Cristiano Ronaldo was able to accomplish.

After this performance, the Spanish capital giants will be playing the Copa del Rey final for the first time since 2014, when they defeated the Blaugrana side in the title clash...with Carlo Ancelotti as their coach.
