Benzema makes LaLiga history with Elche double

Karim Benzema is now level with David Villa as the 12th highest scorer in LaLiga Santander history on 184 goals.

The Real Madrid striker scored his 14th and 15th league goals of the season to earn a 2-1 victory over Elche on Saturday.

In this campaign’s scoring charts, the Frenchman is now within four goals of Lionel Messi’s 19 in LaLiga Santander. Luis Suarez is second in the Pichichi running with 18 goals.

Having missed a couple of games lately through injury, Benzema is hitting form at just the right time for Los Blancos ahead of their second leg with Atalanta in the Champions League.
