Real Madrid Mess Up Penalty Routine Made Famous By Johan Cruyff
With Real 1-0 up and on the verge of winning La Liga against Villarreal, Los Blancos were awarded a penalty and Ramos, reliable as ever, stepped up to take.
But instead of smashing it or even attempting a Panenka, Ramos touched the ball forward to Benzema, who slotted home his second goal of the game.
However, the Real No.9 had actually encroached into the area too early and so the spot-kick had to be retaken. Benzema assumed duties for the second penalty and duly converted past Sergio Asenjo.
