Social Zone: The Karim Benzema show, plus new Twitter boss Elon Musk to sponsor Bradford City?

Karim Benzema put on a memorable Champions League performance against Man City, while Elon Musk has been presented with a fresh idea for how to spend his fortune.

Real Madrid's Champions League clash with Manchester City certainly lived up to the hype, as the seven-goal thriller provided more questions than answers. 

The second leg could prove to be just as intense as Carlo Ancelotti's side look to overturn their one-goal deficit at the caldron that is the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real may have come up short in the first leg of their semi-final, but all the talk since has been about one man in particular, Karim Benzema.

Here's why…

Don't know what Lee Hendrie is more excited about - the Panenka or the 'salt and vinegar' line.

Let's be honest, both were equally impressive.

Benzema's double at the Etihad means he has now scored 41 goals in 41 games.

Unsurprisingly, that stat has got many people talking about the Ballon D'Or - including Mesut Ozil.

I wouldn't get my hopes up, though. Robert Lewandowski scored 48 last season and still missed out because Lionel Messi had one or two half-decent games for Argentina.

Moving on, there's been a lot of talk about Elon Musk using his wealth to purchase Twitter. Many argue that he could have used the $44billion to help battle starvation across the world or try and tackle poverty.

If he's really ambitious, he could try and sponsor the Bradford City women's team for the next three megaannums.

We end social zone with what some may call a 'fluke' from Mark Williams at the World Snooker Championship.

If you ask him though, it was all precisely calculated!
