VIDEO: Karim Benzema’s Al-Ittihad Nightmare Continues With Horror Own-Goal



Karim Benzema’s nightmare at Al-Ittihad has become worse as the legendary player from France scored an own goal in the AFC Champions League on Thursday.

Benzema was picked to start up front as Ittihad took on Uzbekistani side Navbahor in the second leg of their round of 16 tie on Thursday. The first game ended in a 0-0 draw but Benzema inadvertently gave Navbahor the lead in the second by sending a header beyond his own goalkeeper at a set-piece.

It has been reported that Benzema is currently unhappy at Ittihad and he was linked with a shock move within the Saudi league, to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr, in the January transfer window. The former Real Madrid star was also linked with Manchester United, although the Red Devils quickly distanced themselves from those rumours.

After the AFC Champions League match on Thursday is over, Benzema will prepare for this weekend’s match against Al-Wehda. They are presently 22 points behind leaders Al-Hilal in the Saudi Pro League, where they are ranked fifth.
