(WATCH) Karim Benzema nets outrageous hat trick at Chelsea

Karim Benzema has netted back-to-back Champions League hat tricks to give Real Madrid an eye catching 3-1 lead away at Chelsea.

The French star scored an incredible treble to haul Los Blancos back from the brink in their last 16 second leg comeback win against Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.

However, his showing in London has even topped that, with three goals inside the first 50 minutes at Stamford Bridge.

Two textbook headers eased the visitors into a 2-0 lead against the Premier League giants before German winger Kai Havertz edged the hosts back into the contest before the break.

But, despite looking set for a revival in the second period, Chelsea shot themselves in the foot immediately after the restart.

Blues keeper Edouard Mendy’s poor mistake from a long ball forward presented Benzema with a perfect chance and he pounced to net his 37th goal of the campaign in all competitions.
