Today Real Madrid won the derby of the city and beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 at Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium, where Casemiro scored the first goal and Oblak's own goal sealed the result for the Blancos. But a cool fact came out after the match about a broken record by Karim Benzema.

The French reached the mark 528 matches with Real Madrid and became the foreign player with the most appearances for the club, a record previously held by Roberto Carlos, who played 527 matches in eleven years. Benzema joined Real Madrid in 2009 from Lyon, at the same time Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaká came over.

In the overall table, Benzema is in the 12th place, while Sergio Ramos is fourth with 662 matches for Real Madrid. The leader is Raúl, who played 741 times for the Casa Blanca. Many of the players present in the list of the people with the most presences have been in the squad in this century and in this current squad.

But the most important fact for Real Madrid right now is that they are now just three points behind Atletico in the league standings, and now the Zidane boys are dreaming of passing them and holding the league title won last season. After qualifying for UEFA Champions League RO16, the morale is now very high at the club.
