REAL MADRID

Benzema keeps up LaLiga goal record with strike at Las Palmas

The Real Madrid ace has now faced 30 different teams in Primera División since joining Los Blancos - and has scored against all 30.

Karim Benzema's goal at Las Palmas on Saturday saw the Real Madrid striker maintain his record of having netted against every team he has come up against in LaLiga.

30 out of 30 for Real star

Benzema's introduction as a second-half substitute made the Canary Islanders the 30th different side he has faced in Spain's top flight since moving to Real in 2009.

And Quique Setién's men soon became his 30th league victim when he prodded in from close range after 67 minutes of the match, which ended 2-2 at the Estadio Gran Canaria.

Benzema scores at the Estadio Gran Canaria on Saturday.

Having never played against newly-promoted Leganés and Alavés in Primera División, the Frenchman will now be aiming to increase his tally to 32 out of 32 when Los Merengues take on the two outfits this season.

Nine goals against Granada, six versus Barcelona

Having scored nine times in clashes with Granada, the Andalusians are the 28-year-old's favourite league opposition, while he has seven each against Getafe and Rayo Vallecano.

Barcelona, Real's arch rivals, have been on the end of six Benzema LaLiga strikes, as have Athletic Club, Sevilla, Real Sociedad and Málaga.
