Karim Benzema defined the phrase ‘so close but yet so far’ against Levante in the 2-0 win. With Madrid up 2-0, and the Frenchman not looking like troubling the scoreline anytime, he produced this bit of absolutely sublime skill.

It is an absolute travesty that it hit the post and it is possibly a good thing that he missed the rebound after such a glorious attempt didn’t go in. Damn crossbar!
