The situation 

The French striker has muscle fatigue in the quadriceps of his left leg and will not be in the game for tonight’s match. Everything indicates that he will also rest against Leipzig on Tuesday. Against Sevilla, without the Ballon d’Or. Karim Benzema will not play tonight’s game due to muscle fatigue in the quadriceps of his left leg. The French striker withdrew early, along with other starters from the match against Elche, from yesterday’s training session and, despite having been part of the squad, dropped out of the match against the Seville team. This was announced by Real Madrid through a statement: ” After the tests carried out today on our player Karim Benzema by the Real Madrid Medical Services, muscle fatigue has been detected in the quadriceps of his left leg.” The club is going to treat the situation with caution and, as AS has learned, everything indicates that it will also rest in the Champions League match on Tuesday against RB Leipzig ( 9:00 p.m.). So his return to the pitch would take place for the next league match, against Girona on Sunday (4:15 p.m.). Sevilla will be the fifth game that Karim has missed this season, after retiring in Glasgow after half an hour with a semitendinosus muscle injury and quadriceps strain. On that occasion, the ailment was in the right leg.

Another trial by fire

The white club will have to get back afloat without their ‘9’. Exams that have already passed with a note in the previous stakes. After Karim’s departure, Ancelotti’s men beat Celtic (0-3) and in the Champions League they did the same in the first leg against Leipzig (2-0), while in the League they added all three points against Mallorca (4-1) , Atleti (1-2) and Getafe (0-1). It was a stretch that allowed Vinicius, Valverde and Rodrygo, this one as ‘false nine’, to take another step forward. Against those of Sampaoli, they will have a new litmus test.
