Benzema relishes Lyon goal

Benzema’s goal put Real ahead before Bafa Gomis equalised for the Ligue 1 side, but whilst pleased to score, he felt mixed emotions at having dented his old club’s European ambitions.

“It was a very important goal for the team, I’m happy. But I’ve been very happy at Lyon and I could not celebrate the goal.

“All my team-mates embraced because it was a goal that put us ahead in the tie.”
