Benzema scored in the Club World Cup final against Kashima Antlers and has earned his place on the list of historic Real Madrid goal scorers. The Frenchman is now the ninth highest goal scorer, having scored 171 goals. This is the same number that Butragueño scored between 1984 and 1995. The next player up on the list is Pirri, who is the eight highest goal scorer for the club, with one goal more (172).

The forward's goals have come in five different competitions: LaLiga (115), Champions League (38), Copa del Rey (14), Club World Cup (3) and the Spanish Super Cup (1). Spread across seasons, his goal scoring balance is as follows: 2009/10 (9), 2010/11 (26), 2011/12 (32), 2012/13 (20), 2013/14 (24), 2014/15 (22), 2015/16 (28) and 2016/17 (10).

The forward played his 337th game, equalling Santamaría's number of appearances between 1957 and 1966, and he is now the fifth-highest foreign appearance maker for Real Madrid. Benzema sits behind Roberto Carlos (527 games), Di Stéfano (396), Marcelo (380) and Cristiano Ronaldo (367) on the list.
