Karim Benzema has broken Real Madrid legend, Raul Gonzalez’s goalscoring record after the Spanish Champions defeated Frankfurt on Wednesday night to win the UEFA Super Cup trophy.
Benzema scored in Real Madrid 2-0 victory over Frankfurt and this means he has edged Raul to become the second-highest goalscorer in the history of the club.
The Frenchman equaled Raul’s record in second place on 323 goals back in May, when he scored a header in a 6-0 thrashing of Levante.
Benzema has now moved to second, on 324, after bagging Madrid’s second against Europa winners Frankfurt.
Austria international, David Alaba broke the deadlock the first half and Benzema added another after he finished off with a Vinicius Junior assist.
The Brazilian winger created 10 goals for Benzema, and against Frankfurt, he teed up the Madrid’s new captain with the chance to side-foot home a first-time finish that crept through Kevin Trapp.
Only Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more goals for Real Madrid than Benzema.
The Manchester United forward netted a remarkable 450 goals during his nine-year spell at Santiago Bernabeu between 2009 and 2018.
