Benzema steals the headlines once more, but Real Madrid fans credit another with 'changing the game' vs Sevilla

Supporters of Spanish giants Real Madrid have flooded to social media on Sunday evening, to single one player out for special praise on the back of the club’s meeting with Sevilla.
Carlo Ancelotti’s troops, of course, were back in action a short time ago.
Amid the club’s ongoing pursuit of the La Liga title, Los Blancos made the trip to Andalusia, for a meeting with Julen Lopetegui’s high-flying Sevilla.
Real of course headed into proceedings brimming with confidence, fresh off the back of a remarkable comeback downing of Chelsea in the Champions League in midweek.
And, when all was said and done this evening, the capital giants’ recovery powers were on full display once more, en route to a turnaround 3-2 triumph.
After goals on the part of Ivan Rakitic and Erik Lamela guided Sevilla into a 2-0 lead inside 25 minutes, Real clawed their way back level courtesy of Rodrygo and Nacho Fernandez, to set up a nail-biting final ten minutes at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

And, as they say, cometh the hour, come the man…
As proceedings rolled into injury time, almost inevitably, Karim Benzema ensured that all three points would be heading back to the Spanish capital, keeping his composure amid a chaotic scene in the Sevilla penalty area to slot home a 39th goal of the campaign:
BENZEMA!!!
From 2-0 down to 3-2 up for Real Madrid!

‘Game changer’
On the back of the final whistle bringing a close to proceedings at the Sanchez Pizjuan, it should therefore come as little surprise to hear of the name of that man Benzema taking its place front and centre in the headlines.
As alluded to above, though, it is in fact another member of Carlo Ancelotti’s ranks who has been singled out as the true ‘game changer’ in the eyes of many others.
The player in question? Rodrygo.
Youngster Rodrygo was introduced off the bench at the interval in Andalusia, and went on to bag not only Real’s first of the clash, but also the assist for Benzema’s eventual winner.
In turn, the Brazilian has been widely hailed by those of a Blancos persuasion across social media, with just some of the highlights showcased below:
