Karim Benzema is in the Hall of Football History. The one who manages a stratospheric year 2022 in terms of statistics has once again proven that he wore his Real Madrid captain and scorer uniform perfectly in the first official match of the season, Wednesday in Helsinki during the European Super Cup against Eintracht Frankfurt (2-0). And Real Madrid thus won its 95th trophy, the 23rd gleaned by the French international. The numbers speak for themselves.

324. This is the number of goals scored by Karim Benzema with Real Madrid. By scoring the second goal of the European Super Cup on Wednesday evening, he thus exceeded Raul’s 323 goals to become the only second top scorer in club history behind the inevitable Cristiano Ronaldo (450).

And if everything seems obvious today for the French striker, the one who is now captain has had to face fierce competition over the years. With the success that we know.
4e. Last year for his 10th appointment, Karim Benzema was at the foot of the podium in the Ballon d’Or ranking, won by Lionel Messi. This season, when he has scored 44 goals in 46 games and won 4 titles (Liga, Spanish Super Cup, Champions League, European Super Cup), it is difficult to see the greatest individual distinction escape him.
