Real Madrid The former midfielder reacted on social media
Karim Benzema channelled his inner Guti against Espanyol to set up Casemiro for Real Madrid‘s opening goal at the RCDE Stadium.
The striker collected the ball inside the penalty area before backheeling it through Bernardo Espinosa‘s legs to find Casemiro to score.
Those reacting to the incredible piece of skill immediately drew comparisons with Guti‘s own backheel assist for Benzema in a game against Deportivo during the 2009/10 season.
In fact, Guti couldn’t resist posting a message to Benzema on social media.
« Magic, my friend, brilliant, » the former midfielder said on Twitter.
That was Benzema‘s seventh assist in LaLiga Santander this season to go with his 17 goals.
