And today in Ipurua he did more of the same with Puskas in the League. Benzema scored 0-1 and 0-3 for Madrid and has 157 goals in the domestic tournament with Real Madrid; The Hungarian made 156. The former Lyon has snatched from Canoncito Pum the sixth position in the table of white scorers in the League; the next in line is Hugo Sanchez, with 164 white targets in the League. It is the eleventh goal of Benzema this season, the ninth in LaLiga.
As it happened with Di Stefano in Europe, Benzema will take advantage of his longevity as a Real Madrid player to sneak into the best scorers in the history of Madrid; The Saeta averaged 0.84 goals per game in the European Cup (49 goals in 58 games), while the Frenchman made 0.51 goals per game in the Champions League (50 goals in 97 games). Something similar will happen with Puskas when it equals or exceeds: the Hungarian scored 156 goals in 180 games, 0.86 per game; Benzema has 157 in 323 duels, an average of 0.49 per game.
Interestingly, it is Puskas also the first chased by Benzema also in the list of historical scorers in Madrid, in which the French currently occupies the sixth place, with 233 goals; with 242 the magiar is situated, although he only played 261 white matches and Benzema has already 480. He also competes with Marcelo for being the foreigner with the most matches played in Madrid; The Brazilian has 494 and the record is owned by his compatriot Roberto Carlos, with 527.
Benzema has played (not counting Eibar) 1,215 minutes of the 1,350 that Madrid has played this course, 90%; Despite the accumulated wear, Zidane opted for the continuity of his best striker, author of nine goals so far this year (one every 135 minutes). He does so to the limit that for Eibar he has not summoned Jovic, his most plausible alternative in the squad. It is not strange to Benzema to score Eibar: he has scored seven goals in nine games, five of them in six duels in Ipurua.
