French star Karim Benzema won a new record after his team defeated Barcelona in El Clásico 2-1, in the match that was held at the “Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium” in the 30th round of the Spanish League.
The 33-year-old French striker is one of only 4 Real Madrid players who have scored in seven consecutive La Liga matches this century after scoring a goal in a match yesterday, according to Opta Statistics.
Benzema joined Ruud van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in this number.
Benzema opened the scoring for the royal team at the 13th minute, in a wonderful artistic way with his right foot heel.
Benzema is experiencing the best seasons of his professional career as a Real Madrid shirt, which began in the summer of 2009, where he scored 19 goals in 26 games.
The last time Benzema failed to score in any La Liga match was in early February, with Benzema achieving the best scoring streak for any Real Madrid player since Bale won this achievement in 2018.
