Benzema passes Puskas's La Liga goals tally in Real Madrid romp over Eibar

Karim Benzema scored a first half brace as Real Madrid raced to a 3-0 half time lead over Eibar and surpassed a club legend for sixth place on Los Blancos La Liga scoring list.

The 31-year-old’s second goal was his 157th for Real and it took him past Ferenc Puskas to sit just outside the five most prolific goalscorers in the vaunted history of the Spanish giants.

Benzema scored Real’s second penalty of the first period just before the half hour mark to overhaul the Hungarian legend’s tally.
