The former France international's 117th assist of his Madrid career came via an outrageous back-heel through the legs of defender Bernardo Espinosa to give Casemiro a simple finish.
The stunning touch swiftly prompted comparisons to ex-Madrid great Guti, who famously teed up Benzema for an open goal with a similarly stunning touch against Deportivo La Coruna in 2010.
As clips were shared of both goals on social media, Guti joined in the conversation to praise his former team-mate.
Sharing a picture of his own assist, the 43-year-old tagged Benzema and posted a series of clapping emojis.
"Magic, friend," he wrote. "Brutal."
