Marcus Thuram scored twice for the home side, but in the last five minutes, Benzema and Casemiro earned the visitors a draw.
It seems like the young forward had one stinker of a game, that his teammates decided to not pass the ball to him.
The Los Blancos sit at the bottom of their group with just this point earned in the draw, after a shock defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk.
