Benzema starred as Real Madrid lost their Champions League tie 4-3 at the Etihad on Tuesday. 

He continued his ultra-prolific form in Europe, scoring two goals including an ice-cold penalty that stunned fans

The Frenchman fooled Ederson as he chipped the ball down the middle of the net.

Fan footage of his sensational spot-kick has since emerged online and it looks even better from the stands.

Needless to say, Benzema's Panenka penalty sent fans wild on social media. 

One Twitter user wrote: "That Panenka was hit with freaking perfection man."​

A second tweeted: "Absolute filth!"​

A third added: "Ice veins."​

Speaking after the game, Benzema touched on his mental confidence having missed two penalties in his side's last game against Osasuna. 

"I always have it in my head that if you don't take a penalty, you will never miss a penalty," he explained.

"That's mental confidence and that's all. I have a lot of confidence in myself... so I do it and it turns out well."​

Carlo Ancelotti added: "I think he changed because the last two penalties were not good. He tried in training, I didn't know how he would shoot.

"He chose this [Panenka] and he did really well, showing strong personality and character. It's not easy in the semi-final of the Champions League to shoot a penalty like this."​

Benzema has now scored a whopping 41 goals in 41 games in all competitions and has 14 Champions League goals to his name this season. 

He'll be looking to add to his tally when they welcome Man City to the Bernabeu next Wednesday.
