Karim Benzema's Leaked Whatsapp Message Shows He Predicted It Would Be 'His Story'
| Last updated
Was Paris Saint-Germain managing to completely mess up their Champions League campaign once again really that predictable? Well Karim Benzema certainly thought so.
At this point the whole PSG project exists pretty much in order for the French side to win the most coveted prize in European club football.
Despite that, and the millions they throw at getting to their ultimate goal, the club find a way every year of throwing it all away, sometimes in spectacular fashion.
Wednesday was one of those occasions, as they led Real Madrid 2-0 with less than 30 minutes of the tie left, after Kylian Mbappe scored the opening goal of the second leg, only for Benzema to blow them away.
The France striker scored a 17 minute hat-trick to end PSG's chances of becoming European champions, and it seems he predicted how it would all go down.
A leaked Whatsapp message between the 34-year-old and rapper Niska shows the footballer told his friend the match would be 'his story' and that PSG would 'do nothing at all.'

Benzema certainly got the first part of the message correctly and it definitely was 'his story,' with the former Lyon man's brilliant hat-trick.
The first goal was certainly contentious with the striker pouncing on an error from Gianluigi Donnarumma, closing down the goalkeeper, and then getting the ball back to slot home.
PSG felt it was a foul on their keeper, with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi reportedly going into the referees room in anger at the decision not to award a free kick.

Incredibly PSG's collapse on Wednesday came just a day after the five year anniversary of them throwing away a 4-0 lead against Barcelona.
On that occasion it was Neymar who rescued Barcelona with two goals, before Sergi Roberto scored the winner in the fifth minute of injury time.
Now Neymar, and Lionel Messi, have seen the other side of the Parisians throwing away a lead in the Champions League, it won't feel great.
