The Real Madrid forward scored three times in 17 minutes on Wednesday evening to seal a remarkable comeback and passage to the last 16 of the Champions League.
Benzema is one of the finest players of his generation and his 13 years in La Liga have made him a 'Los Blancos' legend.
Turns out he somehow has fans at Barcelona too, somehow.

The Blaugrana were playing the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie and one fan turned up in this season's home shirt with Benzema on the back.
Memphis Depay is currently Barcelona number nine, but this youngster clearly prefers Benzema.
Perhaps he's happy the 34-year-old knocked out the team who took Neymar and Lionel Messi from them?
Fans have reacted to the image on social media and they can't get their heads round it.
One commented: "Get out... what on earth is this?"
Another added: "Football is dying right in front of our eyes."
A third said: "Has he lost a bet?"
While someone put: "My guy had a dream."
PSG took a 1-0 lead to the Santiago Bernabeu after Kylian Mbappe's stoppage time goal in the first leg.
Mbappe doubled their lead on aggregate with a fine finish in the first half, but Real turned on the style in the second half.
Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was dispossessed in his penalty area and it allowed Benzema to fire home after a Vinicius Jr cutback.
Benzema doubled his tally and brought Real level with a fine finish, before smashing home the winner straight from kick-off.
"Karim Benzema is a fantastic leader, a fantastic centre forward," manager Carlo Ancelotti told reporters post-match.
"I'm very happy with what he's doing and his attitude.
"After the first goal, we got into a good dynamic, we pressed and controlled the ball better. We had fewer difficulties in the second half compared to the first.
"At half-time, we said to ourselves that we had to stay in the game, even if it was difficult, thinking that something could happen.
"PSG are a great team with great players, but that's football, every little thing can change everything like that first goal."
Meanwhile, Barcelona drew their game with Galatasaray 0-0.
