Karim Benzema’s presentation lasted only 17 minutes during Real Madrid’s visit to the Real Sociedad field. After feeling discomfort, the forward looked towards the substitutes’ bench and requested to be changed. Then, the gunner quickly left to the locker room to have scope of what will happen just days after facing Inter Milan in the Champions League and Atlético de Madrid in LaLiga Santander.

After seeing his team’s 0-2 victory on the substitutes’ bench, the Frenchman waited for Sunday’s session in the capital to undergo the first medical test to determine what injury he suffered and the period in which he will be out of fields. Fortunately, for him and the club, the news is encouraging.

The newspaper AS indicated that Benzema has “Discomfort in the hamstrings of the left leg”, nothing that compromises your participation for weeks. However, the staff of the ‘White House’ recommends carrying out a new check-up this Monday to confirm if the muscle discomfort does not represent high severity.

That said, the ‘Gato’ is not in a position to meet Inter at the Santiago Bernabéu. Due to the proximity of the appointment (Tuesday, December 7 at 3 in the afternoon, in Peruvian time), it is impossible to think that the author of 17 goals so far this season will even appear among the substitutes in the vital clash for determine the leader of the Champions League group.

In such a scenario, the attacker and Carlo Ancelotti’s technical command will put together a plan so that the ‘9’ does arrive in conditions at the Madrid derby next Sunday the 12th. “I don’t think it will be available for Tuesday, but it may be that it will come against Atlético”, expressed the Italian DT at a press conference.

Benzema’s injury comes at one of the best moments of the campaign both individually and collectively. And it is that Karim has had little space to rest, because he played everything with the white coat. Above, the return to the French team left him without those periods (when he was not called) to take a break.

Anyway, Ancelotti, judging by what was seen last Saturday against Real Sociedad, will once again give Luka Jovic confidence. The Serbian entered the scene to replace the French and despite having a timid start, the following was worthy of applause because he assisted Vinicius Junior for the 0-1 and then he was in charge of scoring the final 0-2.
