Kiko Casilla reveals THAT Benzema goal v Liverpool in 2018 was no accident

Remember the 2018 UEFA Champions League final?

Karim Benzema scored a memorable opener against Liverpool when Loris Karius inadvertently rolled the ball against the Frenchman, resulting in it ricocheting into the net.

Many attributed the opening goal in Kyiv to an error from the German goalkeeper but former Real Madrid man Kiko Casilla insists luck had nothing to do with it.

"Karim had been studying Karius for half an hour. He knew he could make that mistake.

"It's not random –  he knew Karius sometimes started play a little too fast and without looking," Casilla revealed in the Offsiders podcast.

What do you, guys, reckon – was it just a fluke or did a French legend see it coming and pounce on the chance?
