Benzema, a historic consecration – Football.fr

But failing to win this coveted trophy, the striker of real Madrid entered the history of French football a little further on Sunday.
Thanks to his goal scored against Sevilla FC on Sunday, the former player ofOlympique Lyonnais has indeed become the most prolific French striker in history. At least in a club. With now 361 goals to his credit, including 295 with Real Madrid and 66 with Olympique Lyonnais, the French international has indeed surpassed the 360 goals compiled by Thierry Henry with Monaco (28), Juventus Turin (3), Arsenal (228), FC Barcelona (49) and New York Red Bull (52). A historic performance that calls for another.
Thierry Henry, with his 51 goals for the French team, still remains the most prolific French striker in all competitions. But with 411 goals on the clock, the threat is becoming clearer for the former Gunner. Counting his 36 goals scored for the French team, nine of which since his return last spring, Karim Benzema is at 397 goals and is therefore only 14 goals from the absolute record of the 1998 world champion.
