Benzema stops Al Ittihad in its tracks: goal and own goal, failed bid for second place

Difficult period for Karim Benzema despite the goal scored against Al Taawon.

Al Ittihad stops at Al Taawon’s home ground, confirming themselves as the true surprise of the Saudi Arabian championship.

The protagonist of the match was Karim Benzema, first on target and then unintentionally scoring an own goal that set the final result at 1-1.

It’s a challenging period for the French striker, following accusations of ties with terrorist groups made by the politics in his home country.
