Karim Benzema returned to Real Madrid training on Wednesday after a lengthy injury lay-off that kept him out of France’s squad the past two weeks.
Karim Benzema was spotted in Wednesday’s training session participating with the full group as others returned from international duty.
Real Madrid remained perfect in La Liga without Benzema as young midfielders Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni continued to take huge strides, and Federico Valverde entered the goalscoring form of his life. Still, Benzema’s return will no doubt still be celebrated. There’s no one in Europe who has been as deadly in big moments as the France star.
Les Bleus will also be pleased to see the Ballon d’Or contender nearing full fitness with the World Cup less than two months away.
This is big news for Benzema, and all football fans should be rooting for him to make the October 16 Clasico against Barcelona. Big games deserve big players.
WHAT NEXT FOR BENZEMA? His initial three-week injury timeline would suggest he could be ready soon, with next week’s Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk a possible target. Real Madrid have not put out an official date, though.
As reported by AS, these two weeks without club football have been used as a mini pre-season for Benzema. No risks have been taken till now and he will increase the volume from next week.
