The striker, who finished the game against Elche without the best feelings and who has just come out of injury, aims to leave in Pamplona in order to arrive in Liverpool in the best way.


Bad news for Los Blancos

Disturbing news at Real Madrid: Karim Benzema finished the duel against Elche this Wednesday with slight discomfort, which persisted this Thursday in Valdebebas, five days after the visit to Anfield for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 League. The Frenchman played 77 minutes of duel in which he was still lacking in rhythm, but still gave him everything to be decisive for the Whites: he scored two goals, both from penalties, and had chances to score several more.


Benzema will play in Pamplona

As reported by Real Madrid, there is no new injury or recurrence of a previous problem, only bad feelings that lead the Frenchman to consider not playing in Pamplona this Saturday in order to guarantee that he arrives in Liverpool in the best conditions on Tuesday the 21st. Francés knows his body better than anyone and usually stops when he feels a physical problem to prevent him from getting older; that is what he will probably do against Osasuna. In any case, his absence in Pamplona is not decided: Benzema will try out this Friday in Valdebebas before choosing, in collaboration with Carlo Ancelotti and the head of Madrid’s medical services, Niko Mihic.
