Real Madrid on Wednesday continued their superb performance lifting the Uefa Super Cup in Helsinki with a win against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The European champions proved they deserve the trophy triumphing over the German side, after the Spanish giant beat Liverpool to win the Champions League in May.

Talented left fullback David Alaba put his side ahead with a tap into an empty net, leaving Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp with no option than to be stranded following Casemiro’s header back across goal.

After the break, Benzema made history and doubled the Spanish giants’ lead with a first-time finish from Vinicius Jr’s cross.

The soccer star overtook Raul and behind only Cristiano Ronaldo who has 450 goals, moved second on Real’s all-time goalscoring list.

On Benzema’s recent feat so far, he has scoring 44 times in 46 games for Real Madrid to help his side win a Champions League and La Liga double, having so much hope to make more impact with his current form.

Interestingly, Benzema, 34,  made comments concerning the role former team-mate, Ronaldo played in his career at the Bernabeu.

“helped me on and off the pitch”, he said, after admitting that he was able to adapt his game and score more goals once the Portugal star left.

Meanwhile, the captain of the Los Blancos during the Super Cup achieved the feat of being the second, only to Ronaldo as Real’s all-time leading scorer.

At the moment, he becomes the frontrunner to win the Ballon d’Or in October.

In reaction to this development, Real coach, Carlo Ancelotti told Movistar that “Benzema is very important, our leader,”

“We are here mostly because of him – he scored many important goals.

“There are no doubts about who should win the Ballon d’Or, it should be Karim.”

With so much accolades showered on the superstar, the Italian added: “For us he’s the most important and most effective player in the world.”

“He is an amazing centre-forward,” former England midfielder Owen Hargreaves told BT Sport. “The great players rise to these occasions. When they have needed Benzema, he has produced.

“If he doesn’t win the Ballon d’Or this season, he never will. I can’t see how he doesn’t win it. He is irreplaceable. He will age well because he has always been a smart player.

“He doesn’t look like he is slowing down – there isn’t another one out there like him.”

While former Real Madrid winger Steve McManaman said: “Incredible, exalted company. Huge iconic names in the history of Real Madrid – only got Cristiano above him and that says a lot.

“[He’s had} 610 appearances to get to where he has got and he deserves all the plaudits.”
