Video: Karim Benzema’s incredible miss (Apoel Nicosia v Real Madrid)
Real Madrid did eventually manager a comfortable away victory against Champions League minnows Apoel Nicosia, but they must have wondered if it was going to be their day when this happened.
Karim Benzema, arguably Europe’s most in-form striker, managed to miss an open goal against the Cypriots. The Frenchman just had to tap-in after the keeper had been completely beaten by the cross.
But somehow he managed to miss.
