Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has clearly been watching Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.
The French striker is in action for the La Liga side in tonight’s Champions League semi-final against city rivals Atletico Madrid.
They currently lead 1-0, thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo goal after just 10 minutes.
Atletico Madrid have improved on their opening 20 minute display, however, they were lucky not to be 2-0 down after Benzema’s audacious attempt at goal.
The forward channeled his inner Emre Can as he latched on to Cristiano Ronaldo’s cross but his overhead kick went just wide.

Emre Can sealed the only goal in a vital 1-0 win for Liverpool last night as his stunning overhead kick helped to defeat Watford.
The victory meant Jurgen Klopp’s side opened up a four point gap on rivals Manchester United in fifth place as the battle for a top-four finish heats up with only a handful of games remaining.
