The Spain international opened the scoring for Zinedine Zidane's men in the 11th minute, but they quickly fell behind when Aissa Mandi's strike found the back of the net, followed by an own goal from Nacho.
However, Real captain Sergio Ramos netted the equaliser in the 50th minute, before Asensio scored his second and Madrid's third to bring up the milestone.
Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo and France international Karim Benzema also found the back of the net in the match, taking the Madrid club's overall tally to 6002 goals.
