Karim Benzema injured during training, There was a major scare at Real Madrid
on Friday morning as star forward Karim Benzema sustained an injury during a
training session at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
Benzema picks up the knock just a day before the club’s La Liga clash against
Real Valladolid and more pertinently, comes ahead of this coming Wednesday’s
Champions League Round of 16 first-leg clash against Atalanta.
The 33-year-old has already netted 17 times this campaign while over his last two full
seasons he scored 57 goals and is one of the most consistent elite forwards in football.
Benzema joined Los Blancos in the summer of 2009 from French club Lyon and he has
been a fixture in the team over the years since and he has steered clear of injuries in
that timeframe – playing over 30 matches in all 11 of his full seasons to date.
However, he is now the latest in a long line of injuries at Madrid and this one will be
more significant than any other
