Four days before the Clasico, Karim Benzema was injured on Wednesday in the return match against Liverpool.

Real Madrid is condemned to the feat, Sunday, during the Clasico. As a result of his nine points outlay on FC Barcelona in La Liga, the Merengue club has no choice but to win at the Nou Camp if he wants (a little) to relaunch the title race. A meeting that the Merengue will approach with a certain handicap: the 90 minutes played this Wednesday against Liverpool in the Champions League.

“It was a high intensity match”, also conceded Karim Benzema after the narrow victory of Real Madrid (1-0). And this new duel against the Reds has left its mark. The Lyon striker had to leave prematurely shortly after scoring the only goal of the game. Immediately after the goal, the former Lyonnais held his right leg at the time of his celebration and a few minutes later, he had to face the facts and give way to Rodrygo.

The interested party nevertheless wanted to be reassuring at the end of the meeting. “It’s the shin, it’s a blow. Quiet, nothing serious”, he confided. Karim Benzema would indeed have received a blow in a duel with Virgil van Dijk just before his goal. Carlo Ancelotti was also confident. “It only seems like a hit. It bothered him a bit but I think he will recover without problems on Sunday.he commented, well aware that another absence from the last Ballon d’Or would be a blow to Madrid’s ambitions.
