He wrote a new line of his legend on Sunday evening in indelible ink.
Author of Real Madrid's equalizer, victorious against Sevilla FC (2-1), Karim Benzema scored his 361st club goal, in all competitions, since his debut.
A record for a French player.
In passing, he erases Thierry Henry tablets.
At almost 34 years old, the Blues striker is undoubtedly living the most accomplished year of his career.
"Proud to have become the top French scorer in history," savored, soberly, Benzema on Twitter after the Madrid victory against Andalusian players.

With Real, where he forms a formidable duo with the Brazilian Vinicius, he is already at 11 goals in 13 La Liga games this season.
Under the blue jersey, found in June 2021, just before the Euro, after more than 5 years of absence, he is just as prolific (9 goals).
He was, in particular, one of the great architects of the online success of nations in October.
In detail, Karim Benzema, placed among the favorites for the Ballon d'Or which will be awarded Monday night in Paris, scored 203 goals in La Liga, 76 in the Champions League (64 with Real Madrid, 12 with OL) , 43 in Ligue 1, 22 in Copa del Rey, 9 in Coupe de France, 3 in Spanish Super Cup, 3 in Club World Cup, 1 in League Cup and 1 in UEFA Super Cup.
Fourth top scorer in the C1, he can now seriously consider adding another record to his record.
He no longer points, in fact, to 14 goals from the record for top scorer in France (club + selection), still held by Thierry Henry with 411 units (against 397 for the Madrid center forward).
