Karim Benzema injury update

Karim Benzema injury update


Karim Benzema has completely recovered from his muscle injury and will be fit to face Sevilla on Sunday in La Liga.

The Frenchman will make his return after three weeks on the sidelines, although it is not certain that he will play from the start.

Zinedine Zidane has all his men available for training for the first time since he arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu. But still he will miss Pepe and Sergio Ramos against Sevilla as they are suspended.

Gareth Bale, who has also suffered several injury problems this season and made his return a couple of weeks ago, will have a chance to get some rest and prevent further injuries as he has not been called by Wales to play next week’s friendlies against Northern Ireland and Ukraine.

Los Blancos are facing a busy schedule in the next few weeks. Thus, Zidane will surely be pleased with Benzema not having been picked by France either.

Those are great news for the Real manager ahead of the crucial Clasico in which Los Blancos will try to defend their honour after losing all hopes of conquering the La Liga title.
