The French frontman has been on target five times in home meetings with the Basque outfit.
Karim Benzema is enjoying a real purple patch in front of goal and his statistics speak for themselves: seven goals in his last six outings. The next round of league fixtures sees Real Madrid play host to Athletic and the team's leading marksman will be keen to extend his fine goalscoring form. The Frenchman has found the net against the Basque side several times in the past. Throughout his Real Madrid career he has plundered eight goals against the side's next opponents, with five of these strikes coming at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Benzema opened his goalscoring account against Athletic on home turf back on 8 May 2010, when he was on the scoresheet in a 5-1 rout. His remaining four goals also came in wins for the home side: in the 5-1 triumph in the 2012/13 season, whilst he grabbed a brace in a 5-0 success in the 2014/5 campaign, before notching in a 2-1 victory in the 2016/17 season.
