Goals from Isco, Dani Ceballos and Benzema saw Los Blancos come from behind to secure a hard-fought victory and extend their winning form to two wins in as many games under coach Zinedine Zidane.

Benzema, who is Los Blancos' top scorer in the 2018/19 campaign so far with 23 goals in 46 games in all competitions, netted his side's winner in the 89th minute, and in doing so, became the first player in the Spanish top flight's history to find the back of the net against each and every team he has come up against in the league.

According to Fox Sports Asia, since arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu from Olympique Lyon in 2009, Benzema has come up against 34 different LaLiga teams and scored against all of them, with bottom-placed Huesca being his latest victims.

Messi, who made some history of his own over the weekend when he netted his 40th goal in a 10th consecutive campaign, has scored against 37 of the 40 teams he has faced in LaLiga, only failing to score against Cadiz, Murcia and Huesca.

Fellow five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo scored against 32 of the 33 teams he faced, with the only exception being Leganes.

Mexican legend Hugo Sanchez, Real's seventh highest scorer ever, previously held the record for having found the back of the net against every team he faced in LaLiga (33), but his achievement was bettered by Benzema, who has faced 34 teams in the Spanish top flight, and scored against all of them.

Spain legend Raul Gonzalez, who spent 16 years at Real, came up against 39 teams during his spell for the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners, and managed to find the back of the net against 35 of those clubs.
