Luka Modric had two good chances to put the hosts ahead early on, but they fell behind after Benzema scored on a shocking mix-up between visiting goalkeeper Anatolii Trubin and defender Marlon.

Alan Patrick, who had earlier hit the post for Roberto de Zerbi’s side, brilliantly chested the ball into Fernando’s path for the equalizer, with the Brazilian forward lashing his effort past home goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and into the roof of the net.

Benzema’s second goal of the evening, however, proved decisive for the hosts, who have now won four of their last five games in all competitions.
