Karim Benzema, Real Madrid’s leading scorer, has missed the last three games due to injury, but Zinedine Zidane says he is “much healthier.”
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is optimistic that his star striker Karim Benzema will be fit to play in Sunday’s crucial LaLiga derby against Atletico Madrid.
With 17 goals in all competitions this season, Benzema is Madrid’s top scorer, but he has missed the club’s last three games due to an undisclosed injury.
According to the official website, Zidane said: “We hope he can be with us, but we have to wait and see because he still hasn’t trained with the team. We’ll assess the situation tomorrow. He’s OK. Karim’s injury is much better and we’ll take a look at him.”
