The 31-year-old striker, who coach Zinedine Zidane championed for an unlikely France recall this week, netted the opener after 17 minutes and soon had a second from the penalty spot.
Benzema moved onto 157 league goals for Madrid, nudging ahead of Puskas, although he remains a long way short of Cristiano Ronaldo's incredible club record of 311.
The former Lyon star overtook another Madrid great in terms of Champions League/European Cup goals on Wednesday.

Ronaldo boasts the Madrid record in the Champions League, too, having netted 105 times for the club.
