Real Madrid vs. Leganes - Football Match Report

But there was no way back for the visitors after Benzema headed Real back into the lead three minutes into the second period. The Dominican native played a small role in Real Madrid's league and Champions League double in 2016-17, scoring five goals in all competitions before join French side Lyon where he scored 18 league goals last season.

Benzema's feat sees him draw level with Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez, although he still trails another iconic figure in the Spanish capital - Raul, who boasts goals against 35 different La Liga sides.

Both still trail Barcelona rival Lionel Messi in the overall list, however, with the Argentinean magician on 36 teams and counting.

Benzema's strike means top-flight newcomers Huesca are the only team he has never scored against with Real Madrid scheduled to play the Aragon-based outfit on December 9.

The airport said the fire was extinguished within eight minutes and everyone on board was evacuated within 17 minutes. Safety concerns have plagued Russia's airline industry as it has witnessed multiple fatal crashes in recent years.

Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui says he can take no credit for the changing fortunes of Karim Benzema in front of goal, but believes his striker can net up to 40 goals this year.

No Real Madrid player other than Ronaldo has snapped up the accolade since Brazilian Ronaldo in 2002-03 while no Frenchman has ever won it.

"For me the most important thing is not the number", said Mariano, despite reports claiming he asked to succeed Ronaldo. But Benzema is filling the void after Ronaldo left in the summer and he has now scored against more La Liga teams than the Juventus star.

Real Madrid are now table toppers in La Liga Santander on the basis of goal difference.
