Benzema could miss Inter and Atletico matches due to injury

05 Dec 2021

Due to a muscle injury, Karim Benzema was replaced in the 17th minute of Real Madrid’s game against Real Sociedad and could miss the club’s crucial games against Inter and Atletico Madrid next Tuesday and Sunday, respectively.

Benzema will not be available to Carlo Ancelotti for the midweek clash that will determine who will finish first in Group D of the Champions League.

Real Madrid will host city rivals Atletico Madrid after their match against the Nerazzurri on Tuesday. Atletico Madrid lost to Real Mallorca at home earlier on Saturday.

Benzema realized he had injured his hamstring while running without the ball, so he tested his left leg for 20 seconds before collapsing and asking to be replaced, with Luka Jovic coming on without warming up.
