Ronaldo scored the first goal of the tournament since September 2016 just two minutes into the second half.
While Ronaldo and Benzema, along with goalkeeper Keylor Navas, will rest when Madrid visits Sporting Gijon, coach Zinedine Zidane said on Friday that an unidentified leg injury will keep Bale from playing.
Ronaldo said it was a moment to savour.
"I wanted to reach this record. To be able to reach this mark is an honour and against a team like Bayern it is better still", the Portugal skipper told BeIN Sport Spain.
The match also saw Bayern's Javi Martinez receive two yellow cards in the space of three minutes for fouling Ronaldo as he looked to break into the hosts' half.

But the Chilean missed a chance to hit a double of his own after sending a penalty over the crossbar, and, as the game wore on, Real took charge.
"We could have been 2-0 down at half-time, which could have changed the match, but we managed to show some patience and get the equaliser", said Zidane.
