Karim Benzema becomes the first Frenchman in history to finish top scorer with 27 goals in La Liga. Congratulations to him. Thanks to his incredible feats this year, Benzema became Real Madrid’s second all-time top scorer, drawing level with Raúl. Both sit on 323 and behind only Cristiano Ronaldo (451).
