Manchester united legend has singled out the German star as the one who controlled the tempo and pace of the game naming him a machine.
" Kroos was excellent, he didn't let them have a sniff. He controlled the tempo, he controlled the pace, he was a true boss. The guy is a machine."
The midfield trio of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro dominated the game hence making Ngolo Kante to be out of the game. The Spanish champions won the game three goals to one courtesy of Benzema's hatrick.
The French superstar has been on a fine form this season scoring ten goals in the champions league, bagging assists in consecutive matches. He has been the only player in history to bag a hatrick against Chelsea in the champions league.
Moreover, Chelsea hope to come back strong next week at Santiago Bernabeu in the champions league second round. They will need to score atleast three goals to qualify.
