Karim Benzema was seen in a footage urging his Real Madrid team-mates not to pass to Vinicius Junior during their epic 2-2 Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.
The forward was seen accusing Junior of ‘playing against us' during the half time of the encounter urging them not to pass to him.
The Spanish giants laboured through their tie on Tuesday night, October 27, at Borussia-Park to secure their first point of the Champions League.
The visitors started the match on an impressive note, with Karim Benzema nearly bagging the opener inside two minutes of gameplay but his shot across the face of the goal only rested in the roof of the net.
Marcus Thuram opened the scoring for the hosts in the 33rd minute to put pressure on Los Blancos who had fluffed several chances upfront.
With Real Madrid behind at half-time, Benzema tore into Junior and tunnel camera captured the scene. He said as quoted by Dailymail:
“Don't play with him - on my mother's life, he's playing against us!”
It then went from bad to worse as Thuram completed his brace and the Spanish club saw themselves trailing 2-0 before the hour-mark.
Madrid lost their Champions League season opener 3-2 to Shakhtar Donetsk at the Santiago Bernabeu, however, they fought back to restore parity in the closing minutes.
Benzema was first to pull one back for Los Blancos in the 87th minute before Casemiro equalised in stoppage time to ensure both sides shared the spoils.
The draw saw Zinedine Zidane's men pick their first point in Group B of the European competition this season.
