Benzema is getting closer than ever to becoming the most decorated player in Real Madrid history after Carlo Ancelotti’s men triumph in Copa Del Rey.

The Frenchman just needs to win one more trophy to surpass Marcelo on 25 trophies and he might likely do more next season.

Marcelo previously held that title with 25 trophies to his name, but Karim has equaled his number of trophies.

The Frenchman would become the undisputed most-decorated footballer in Real Madrid’s history if he wins one more.

Given that the season is almost over and Madrid is just left in the Champions League – which they might win – Benzema may break that record this year.

Karim Benzema continues to add to his legendary status at Real Madrid as he matches Marcelo’s record.

Benzema clinched 25 titles with the club after lifting the Copa del Rey with a win over Osasuna at the Estadio La Cartuja.

The feat saw him draw level with Marcelo as the Madridista to have won the most trophies in the club’s history.

His trophies includes 5 Champions League, 5 Club World Cups, 4 European Super Cups, 4 LaLiga titles, 3 Copas del Rey and 4 Spanish Super Cups.

Benzema achieved this in his 14th season in Spain and his name is already in the club’s history books as the second top scorer (352), the sixth player in terms of appearances (643) and the second for the most victories (439).
