Karim Benzema Has Now Scored Against Every La Liga Team He’s Faced at Real Madrid

Karim Benzema has joined Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only players to have scored against every La Liga side they have faced.

The Real Madrid striker completed the job by netting in his side’s 2-0 victory Elche at the weekend.

That win stretched their lead on Barcelona at the top of La Liga to four points with 14 league games remaining.

And Benzema’s scoring record means he joins an elite club with the world’s best two players in Ronaldo and Messi.

The Frenchman has scored 85 goals against 29 different opponents, with five coming in El Clasico derbies.

In total, he’s got 130 goals for the club after signing in a £26million deal from Lyon in 2009.

That makes him the 11th highest scorer in Madrid history and at the age of just 27, he could quite comfortably go on to break into the top 10 before calling time on his spell with the Spanish giants.

In tribute to Benzema, here are some of his best bits from the 2014/15 season:
