Karim Benzema suffered a muscle pull in Friday’s training session ahead of the home clash against Sampaoli’s Sevilla. The captain of Real Madrid and the Ballon d’Or 2022, underwent medical tests this morning.

“After the tests carried out today, Karim Benzema has been diagnosed with muscle fatigue in the quadriceps of his left leg,” says the Spanish club’s medical report regarding the 34-year-old striker, who scored one of the goals in the recent 0-3 success in Elche.

Benzema thus misses tonight’s challenge and the transfer to Leipzig in the Champions League next Tuesday. Carlo Ancelotti hopes to have the team’s goal scorer ready for the October 30 meeting against Girona in La Liga.

Real leads the Spanish championship with 28 points accumulated in ten weeks of the championship. “Los Blancos” face Sevilla tonight in the capital, a match that will be broadcast on SuperSport 2 starting at 21:00.
