Benzema ties Raul for second place on Real Madrid’s all time goal-scoring list

Prolific French forward Karim Benzema is now second on Real Madrid’s all time goal-scoring list after his latest strike against Levante. He is tied with Raúl in second place with 323 goals. Benzema was among the goal scorers as the Spanish giants humiliated Levante 6-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday night. The 2021-22 La Liga champions bounced back from a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in fine fashion, with Vinicius Junior scoring a sublime hattrick. The dominant victory also relegated Levante who were precariously placed at the 20th before the game. 

Benzema is now the joint-second highest goalscorer of all time for Madrid at 323 goals - the same mark that former Spain international Raul reached before leaving the club in 2010. Cristiano Ronaldo still has a healthy lead over the pair at the top of the club's scorers' list, however, with the Portuguese having netted an incredible 450 goals during his nine-year stay at the Bernabeu.

Benzema's strike against Levante was his 27th goal in La Liga this season and his 43rd in 43 appearances across all competitions. His goals have already helped Madrid secure the league title and the Supercopa de Espana, and supporters will hope that he can deliver the goods again when Ancelotti's team take on Liverpool in the Champions League final later this month.
