Karim Benzema may have been injured.
Karim Benzema, Madrid’s striker in the 4-1 defeat disaster against Valencia, finished the match with clear signs of physical injury. These problems will be very concerning at Real Madrid.
Valencia’s 4-1 win not only shattered Real Madrid’s self-esteem in La Liga, but could also have other consequences for the squad. As ‘AS’ says, Karim Benzema finished the match injured.
The Frenchman was substituted for Mariano in the final minutes, but to start off with the player’s injuries were not taken fully taken into account, he was the only one able to score in the defeat against Valencia.
‘AS’ also speaks of a preliminary examination that, has diminished some of the concern over the player. To avoid further trouble, the French attacker will undergo further tests this Monday.
A stumbling block that comes in the middle of the selection process. With the call up from France long gone, Benzema will now have time to recover from these physical problems before the return of Madrid to the league.
It will not be until November 21st that Real Madrid returns to the league against Villarreal, which they will have to face in the La Cerámica stadium.
If his troubles remain minor, Benzema should be recovered by then. The ‘9’ is also on a roll: he has played four consecutive matches with scoring (Borussia Mönchengladbach, SD Huesca, Inter and Valencia).
