Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema Megged The Malaga Keeper (Video)
After defeating Malaga by a narrow 3-2 score in the first leg of their Round of 16 Copa del Rey match-up, Real Madrid found themselves nervously clinging to a 0-0 draw just over 70 minutes into their second leg yesterday. But as nervous as the Real Madrid players and fans may have been at that point, they obviously weren’t as nervous as Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero, whose unease must have caused his hands to sweat through his gloves, resulting in his inability prevent Karim Benzema from nut-megging him in the 72nd minute.
Real Madrid would hold on for the 1-0 victory (4-2 aggregate), as they advance to the next round of the tournament, where they will face Barcelona. The quarter-finals sure does seem early for an El Classico match-up, but who’s complaining?
As for Willy, the saddest part of all is that he had just finished making a number of incredible saves before allowing this back-breaking softie to squeak through his legs.
