CR7 Hands Benzema Penalty Despite Milestone Goal Looming

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo Hands Karim Benzema Penalty Despite Milestone Goal Looming

By David Kappel - Feb 26, 2018 09:32 AM @kappilinho

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is often considered a selfish player, but this weekend he handed under-fire striker Karim Benzema a penalty kick instead of securing another record goal for himself.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see images of Ronaldo's unselfish act.

The Portuguese has been in fine form recently, scoring 12 goals in his past seven games across all competitions.

On Saturday, Ronaldo was on a brace when Los Blancos were awarded a late penalty after Gareth Bale had been brought down in their 4-0 home win over Alaves, but opted against taking the spot-kick himself. Instead, he allowed Benzema to score only his fourth LaLiga goal of the current campaign.

The unselfish act is underlined by the fact that the 33-year-old currently sits on 299 LaLiga goals and 49 career hat-tricks, but he seemingly decided to pause his personal record hunt to support his teammate.

Benzema scored the penalty, while Ronaldo will have to wait a little longer to score his milestone goal.

Overall, the Portugal talisman has now scored 28 goals in all competitions for Real this season, with 14 of those coming in the Spanish top flight.

When he's selfish he delivers what supporters need for the team n our opposition grumbles n when he's generous the say he's copying from messi so what do you guys need?you are just like the idiot xavi who always consider a beautiful football without scoring

He has learnt that not everyday is about him. Besides, he didn't want his milestone to be overshadowed by the fact that it was achieved through penalties. Messi has been sharing such responsibilities long time ago(ask Neymar).
