Benzema vs. Guti: whose backheel assist is better?

footballcritic: Real Madrid opened up a potentially vital two-point lead at the top of La Liga on Sunday after narrowly defeating Espanyol 1-0 from home thanks to a goal from Casemiro.

However, the moment of the match was the assist, with Karim Benzema continuing his scintillating form by flicking the ball into the path of the Brazilian from a tight angle, allowing for the easy finish.

It could prove to be a key moment of the campaign, and evoked memories of a similar Real Madrid assist from 10 years ago from one Guti.

In 2010, Real Madrid were embroiled in another battle with Barcelona for the Spanish Primera Division title. At that time, they had not defeated Deportivo on their home patch since 1991, yet emerged with all three points after a 3-1 away victory at the Riazor.

The moment of that match provided one of the greatest assists the league had ever seen, as while through on goal Guti deceived the Depor goalkeeper, defence, and basically everyone else, by not shooting, but backheeling a pass into the path of a team-mate to slot home.

Now down to the Question: Between Benzema and Guti whose backheel assist is a better?
