The 'new Neymar' who scored ideal hat-trick

The 'new Neymar' who scored ideal hat-trick

Zinedine Zidane was full of praise for Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema.

The amount was very low, but they wanted to go. "He did well in the past few games", Kroos said.

And while Zidane might feel his veteran striker is on the same level as Ronaldo, the 34-year-old Juventus striker is now leading the rankings on 127 Champions League goals. "He has got injured, he has returned here and he has not recovered, but he wants to recover, he wants to play", Zidane said.

Indian Fans can watch the live stream of Real Madrid vs Galatasaray on the Sony LIV app and Sony TV.

Madrid has seven points, five more than third-place Club Brugge, which lost 1-0 at leader Paris Saint-Germain in the group's other match.

Benzema added: "Rodrygo is only 18 years old but he is fearless". The Belgian seems to have found his way in Madrid. He's the first one this situation is hurting. Zinedine Zidane continues to look for a consistent lineup that will give him the attacking prowess and the goals he's still looking for.

Despite Bale's recent lack of action and doubts about his physical condition, Zidane says he is powerless to prevent the player from joining up with Wales.

Rodrygo's second came just three minutes later and showed another side to his game, as the Brazilian held his run back ever so slightly to get onto the end of Marcelo's cross into the box, scoring with his head this time.

Real Madrid hosts Galatasaray at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, November 6, with kickoff scheduled for 9 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET).

Rodrygo replaced Vinicius to make his debut against Osasuna but his four consecutive starts have come in the absence of Gareth Bale, who is recovering from a calf injury and may struggle to regain his place when he returns. From the left flank, Marcelo curled a ball over the Galatasaray defence that reached Rodrygo, and the young Brazilian made a move to his left before unfurling a wicked, lowly driven shot that beat visiting goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. Dinamo then scored twice before the 90-minute mark to go 3-1 up, but conceded three minutes into stoppage time. "There is also a rival and they have also put us in difficulties, which is normal". Prompted by VAR, referee Felix Zwayer decided Steven Nzonzi had caught the foot of Toni Kroos inside the area and Ramos lifted his penalty down the middle. He should start on the right, with Eden Hazard playing from the left, and Karim Benzema starting as the striker.
