Carlo Ancelotti confirms Karim Benzema to miss Inter Milan clash
Los Blancos have already confirmed their last 16 spot in 2022, but top spot in Group D has not been settled, with the Italians capable of overhauling Ancelotti’s side if they win in Madrid.
Ancelotti was asked about the 33-year-old’s fitness in his post match interview and he claimed the picture looks bleak in the short term.
“Karim has had a problem with his hamstring, it bothered him a little in the game and it don’t think he will be fit for Tuesday, but maybe for Sunday”, as per reports from Marca.
Real Madrid face Atletico Madrid in a highly anticipated Madrid derby next weekend with Ancelotti looking to put even more distance between themselves and the defending champions.
He could step in for Benzema against Inter with Spanish international Marco Asensio another potential option for Ancelotti.
