Benzema’s diagnosis

Spanish newspaper Marca has revealed the nature of the injury suffered by French striker Karim Benzema during his team’s match against Celtic in the first round of the Champions League group stage.

Benzema complained of muscle pain in his right leg, so Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti decided to replace him in the 30th minute with Belgian Eden Hazard.

And the newspaper Marka reported in a report that Benzema was suffering from some discomfort in his knee and added that the French striker tried to convince himself to continue the game, but failed to replace him.

The newspaper pointed out that Benzema did not sit on the Real Madrid bench after changing but went straight to the dressing room with obvious signs of worry and sadness on his face.

The clash ended with a 3-0 victory for Real Madrid over Celtic as the royal team launched an exemplary campaign to defend their Champions League title.
