The Frenchman scored a host of unforgettable goals in his 14-year spell at Santiago Bernabeu.

During his glorious spell at Real Madrid, Karim Benzema established himself as one of the most formidable forwards in the history of Real Madrid. 

With his exceptional agility and clinical finishing, Benzema registered over 350 goals for the Blancos, helping the club win 25 trophies.

In this article, we take a look at Karim Benzema’s best goals for Real Madrid, showcasing his brilliance on the field.

5- Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool (2018)

Benzema scored one of the most memorable goals of his career in the 2018 Champions League final.

Real Madrid were pushing for the opening goal when Benzema capitalized on Loris Karius’ unbelievable blunder to make it 1-0 in the 50th minute. The goal helped the Blancos win their third Champions League title in a row, beating the Reds 3-1 in Kyiv.

4- Real Madrid 4-1 Real Sociedad (2015)

As a classic No.9, Benzema usually stays away from the flanks, searching for balls well inside the opponent’s box. 

However, Isco’s pass in the corner of Sociedad’s box tempted him to go for the shot as soon as he received the ball. The decision was correct as the Frenchman’s unstoppable shot went right into the top corner of the net.

3- Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona (2021)

During his Real Madrid career, Benzema scored 16 goals against Barcelona, reaching the fourth spot on El Clasico’s all-time goalscoring charts.

This cheeky finish against the Catalans in 2021 stands out as one of the best goals in the French striker’s career.

2- Real Madrid 5-1 Sporting Gijon (2016)

As a clinical finisher, Benzema could score goals even in the most unlikely situations. Bale’s cross was probably meant to meet Benzema’s head, but the Frenchman smashed it into Gijon’s net with a spectacular acrobatic shot.

1- Osasuna 1- 5 Real Madrid (2012)

Benzema was part of Real Madrid’s devastating “BBC” trio alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. This early goal against Osasuna showcases the unstoppable firepower of that team, with Benzema turning CR7’s cross into a perfect volley.
