Karim Benzema Injury Update, News, Report, Status, Return Date
Benzema felt something wrong with the hamstring and went to the ground off the ball in the opening quarter of the match. Therefore, Ancelloti rushed Luka Jovic into the pitch replacing the Frenchman without the warm-up.
Italian manager said after the game-
“The Benzema thing does not seem serious at all, but I do not think it will be available for Tuesday,” “Karim has had a problem, it bothered him a little and it didn’t I think [he will be there] for Tuesday, but maybe for Sunday, yes,”
The Los Blancos currently sit at the top of the La Liga table 8 points clear of second-placed Sevilla who have a match in hand. It will be interesting to see how Ancelloti copes up without the Frenchman and other injured players.
