NEWS | 30/01/2019 | Javier GarcíaThe madridista forward has scored a brace on four occasions this season.
His first brace came in September 2009 against Tenerife. Since then, he has netted two or more goals in at least one game in each of the ten seasons he has been at the club. 2011/12 was his most productive, where he scored at least two goals in eight separate games. This season has seen him rocket home a brace against the likes of Girona, Leganés, Viktoria Plzen and Espanyol.
Benzema's footballing class is evident when we compare his numbers from seasons past. The Frenchman has already surpassed his total number of goals for last season (12) and he is in his richest vein of form of the last three seasons. At this point in 2016/17 he had fired in eleven and at the same point in 2017/18 he had been on target six times.
