Benzema amazes with a super goal and an assist in Al-Ittihad’s last game

A virtuoso performance from Karim Benzema was not enough to secure Al-Ittihad the three points as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Al-Hazm.

Al Ittihad have not managed more than a 2-2 draw at home to Al-Hazm in matchday 11 in the Saudi Arabian Super League.

Benzema gave the hosts the lead in the 26th minute after good work from N’Golo Kante, but also a super goal scored by the French striker.


The French World Cup winner with France added an assist in the 81st minute for a 2-1 lead, but Faiz Selemani ensured the points were split with a decisive strike in the 86th minute.

After 11 games, Al-Ittihad are fifth in the league, five points behind leaders Al-Hilal, who have a game in hand. They will be aiming to lift their first league title since 2009.

In the next match, they face Al Feiha, in the match expected to take place on Tuesday in the King Cup of Champions.
