On Wednesday night Karim Benzema wrote himself into Real Madrid history with two goals against Cadiz. And matched Raul as scored against most opponents for the Real Madrid, he has now scored against his 35th different team in LaLiga Santander. Not even Cristiano Ronaldo reached this milestone.
The Frenchman has now scored at least one goal in nine consecutive appearances in LaLiga Santander for Real Madrid. Netting 11 in the process so far for the Los Blancos.
The late equalizer against Atletico Madrid in the derby and the backheel flick against Barcelona in the El Clasico those were the most crucial point for Madrid and Benzema delivered as expected as he is the backbone of the club wearing the no. 9. Now two goals behind Messi in the Pichichi race.
Real Madrid in LaLiga Santander are unbeaten in 12-match so far and Benzema goals have contributed to a 12-match unbeaten run as they now sit top of the table.
