Real Madrid is once again in the eye of the hurricane for the fans of European football and especially the fans “Ches”, after the main referee, Hernández Hernández, whistled a penalty at the end of the first half and which was taken advantage of by Karim Benzema to advance the merengue club a goal by zero. Subsequently, the club’s personal Twitter profile cited a controversial comment about this fact.

The play occurred when Casemiro fell into the area in the 41st minute of the first half due to an alleged contact with Uruguayan defender Omar Alderete.

But the “Ches” club was not the only one who reacted to this action, but other players also showed their discontent, one of them was Gerard Piqué, who less than three hours ago ended his commitment against Granada where FC Barcelona equalized to a goal with Granada.

Lastly, French striker Karim Benzema scored his 300th career goal and joined Di Stéfano, Raúl and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only players to reach this figure in their career defending the meringues uniform.
