Benzema's incredible run comes to an end: he was booked after 881 days

Real Madrid's Karim Benzema was shown a yellow card in Saturday's match against Deportivo Alavés. The French striker had gone 122 games without a booking.

Real Madrid comfortably beat Deportivo Alavés on Saturday thanks to goals from Carlos Henrique Casemiro, Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema, who scored a brace.

The French striker was one of the best players of the match and, in addition, he ended an incredible streak that he has had since last 26 August 2018.

The newspaper 'Mundo Deportivo' echoes this. Hernández Hernández booked Benzema and put an end to the 881 days the Frenchman had gone without a yellow card.

The last one he received was in Madrid's 1-4 win over Girona at Montilivi in the second matchday of LaLiga Santander 2018-19.
