Karim Benzema surpassed Raul's Real Madrid goals record during Los Blancos' UEFA Super Cup triumph on Wednesday night, with only Cristiano Ronaldo now ahead of him.

The LaLiga giants beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 to win the title that was decided between last season's UEFA Champions League winners and UEFA Europa League holders.

Benzema got the second goal in the match to see him jump past Raul into second place on the Spanish club's all-time top goalscorers list, behind leader Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to the Daily Mail, the France star's strike against Frankfurt was his 324th goal for Real, while Raul scored 323 times during his 16-year stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Only Ronaldo now stands between the 34-year-old and becoming the club's all-time top scorer, but the Portuguese superstar is still far ahead him with 450 goals for the Spanish giants.

While the France international's contract is set to expire at the end of this season, which would leave him with a limited amount of time to chase Ronaldo's tally, reports do suggest that talks over a new deal are advanced.

Following another successful evening for Carlo Ancelotti's men, the Italian head coach lauded Benzema for his performance.

"He's a very important player, a team leader," the 63-year-old said, per ESPN.

"If we're here, it's largely due to his merits, he scored a lot of goals, he finished the season well, he scored a goal today and now he's going for the Ballon d'Or award."

The victory was also a special night for Ancelotti as he became the first coach to lift the Super Cup four times.
