Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema will miss the match against Valladolid in the 24th round of the Spanish Championship.
The Frenchman is skipping the Madrid team training session today and will not be included in the offer for the upcoming La Liga match.
Moreover, as Cadena COPE has noted, the presence of the 33-year-old forward against Atalanta in the first leg of the Champions League 1/8 final is doubtful.
The head coach of the club, Zinedine Zidane, will explain today at a press conference the reasons for Benzema’s absence.
On 20 February, Real Madrid will play against Valladolid, and on 24 February, against Atalanta.
