In Real’s 6-0 victory over Galatasaray in the fourth round of the European Cup group stage, in addition to the super hat-trick that Rodrigo made, Benzema also contributed a double. Those goals not only contributed to creating monumental results for the Spanish royal team but also helped the French striker achieve impressive records in this arena.
Accordingly, the above goals put Benzema on par with superstar Messi to become the second player in the history of the tournament to have at least 1 goal in 15 consecutive seasons.
The Barcelona striker did this when he scored against Slavia Prague on October 24, and after less than a month, it was the Real’s turn to create the same milestone.
The above achievement was made by Benzema starting in the 2005/06 season – the time when he played for Lyon. Even though he only played one match in the national shirt that season, the striker still got himself a goal.
Up to this point, after 15 seasons, Benzema has had a total of 61 goals at the highest European club level, of which the 2011/12 season is the year he owns the most goals with 7 shots. hit the opponent’s net. Certainly, the French striker will significantly improve the number of 2 goals this season in the upcoming matches.
In addition to the above record, the brace against Galatasaray on the morning of November 7 also helped Benzema match the achievement with Real legend Di Stefano with the number of goals scored in the Champions League with 49 goals together. The current striker of the White Vulture needs 96 matches in this arena to reach that number while the legendary Los Blancos only needs 58 games.
In the immediate future, Benzema is still two more monuments of Real in terms of the number of goals in the C1 Cup: Raul (66 goals) and Cristiano Ronaldo (105 goals).
