He came into the game with a record of 11 goals in his last nine final matches of campaigns and it wasn't long before he added to that record. Benzema doubled Madrid's lead with his 11th league goal of the season to make it 2-0 after 55 minutes and Zinedine Zidane's side, who needed just a point to be crowned champions, had extra cause for celebration by becoming the first in the club's history to score in every La Liga game of the season, reports goal.com The Zinadine Zidane's side now face Juventus in the Champions League final looking to complete a double. If Real beat Juventus in Cardiff, they will become the first team to successfully defend the Champions League. (ANI)
