Benzema to be at Zinedine Zidane’s disposal for the Madrid derby


Karim Benzema is recovering well from his injury and is scheduled to return to action on March 7 for the match between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

For both the club and the player, the goal is for Benzema to be at the disposal of Zinedine Zidane at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano for the Madrid derby.

Real Madrid, however, does not rule out Benzema recovering in time for the clash against Real Sociedad at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium on Monday.

Ten days are left before the meeting with the side of Diego Simeone and Los Blancos is not prepared to hurry the return of Benzema to prevent the chances of a possible injury setback.\

For Real Madrid’s medical personnel, his return to action is a top priority, as the team needs their first-choice striker for the matches against Atleti and Atalanta.

This season, Benzema is Los Blancos’ top scorer with 17 goals, led by Casemiro, who has already scored six, one of whom was a decision-maker last weekend in their win against Real Valladolid.

The French striker did not play against Atalanta, but this time it was his compatriot Ferland Mendy who broke the deadlock to help Real Madrid secure a 1-0 victory with a thunderous right-footed drive.

In the last few games, neither Marco Asensio nor Vinicius Junior took a step forward when Real Madrid needed their attackers to cover Benzema in terms of goals scored.
