Real Madrid beat Borussia Monchengladbach 2-0 in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. The victory ensured Los Blancos reached the knockout rounds in all 25 of their Champions League campaigns and every season since 1996-97 when they did not qualify for Europe.

Karim Benzema scored two headers in the first half, becoming the 5th player to score 50 Champions League group-stage goals after Lionel Messi (71), Cristiano Ronaldo (67), Raul (53) and Ruud van Nistelrooy (50).

Zinedine Zidane's side were in danger of their first ever group-stage elimination. Benzema's goals from Lucas Vazquez and Rodrygo crosses put Real in control and they should have won by more with Luka Modric having a goal disallowed and Benzema and Vazquez hitting the woodwork.
