Benzema hat trick video: Real Madrid star scores three vs Chelsea

With no Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi to take the Champions League quarterfinal spotlight, Karim Benzema is basking in the glory with back-to-back hat tricks. 

The Real Madrid star already stole the show in the Champions League round of 16 with his 17-minute hat trick against powerhouse PSG. In the final half hour of the second leg, Benzema singlehandedly erased a 2–0 aggregate deficit to send Messi & Co. crashing out of the Champions League. 

On Wednesday against Chelsea in the Champions League quarterfinal first leg, Benzema picked up where he left off with three goals for Real over the course of 25 minutes. 

The French international opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge in the 21st minute with his laser header off of Vinicius Junior’s cross—a goal that was remarkable for the fact that Benzema headed the ball from distance, just inside the line designating the penalty area.
