Some things never change for Karim Benzema.
The French striker, who averaged nearly a goal per game last season en route to Champions League glory, has officially become Real Madrid’s second-highest scorer of all time.
The 34-year-old doubled Madrid’s lead against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Uefa Super Cup.
The strike gives him more goals (324) than Raúl (323). Cristiano Ronaldo is the only player in the club’s history with more (450). Well over 1000 goals have been scored amongst all three Madrid legends.
King Kareem’s latest effort also helped Real Madrid lift the UEFA Super Cup for the 5th time.
