Karim Benzema felt slight muscle discomfort during Real Madrid training this Friday. This happened during the small game at the very end of the session and the French preferred to stop immediately. However, it is not serious and the participation of the French against Sevilla FC, Saturday evening at 9 p.m., does not seem to be compromised.
The Madrid captain is also part of the group summoned by Carlo Ancelotti for the reception of the Sevillians, and told his coach that he wanted and could play. He will test himself just as a precaution during the gathering of the Madrid team on Saturday afternoon at the Valdebebas training center, before leaving for the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.
A Ballon d’Or presented to the public before the match
After being injured for three and a half weeks in September and resting against Getafe a fortnight ago, Benzema is having a difficult start to the season physically. Before the match, the French international will present his Ballon d’Or to the Madrid public. Thibaut Courtois, absent for three weeks because of sciatica and who should find his place in goal, will do the same with his Yachine trophy.
