Touched on the foot this week against Rayo Vallecano, Karim Benzema is forfeited for Real Madrid’s trip to Seville this Saturday.
Karim Benzema will once again shine by his absence. Regularly in the infirmary this season, due to repeated physical glitches, the tricolor striker was injured again on Wednesday, during Real Madrid’s victory over Rayo Vallecano (2-1). Therefore, the Ballon d’Or 2022 does not appear in the Madrid group selected by Carlo Ancelotti to face Sevilla FC this Saturday.

At the end the doctor gave him five stitches in the locker room.Revealed the historic agent of Nueve, Karim Djaziri, on Twitter after the meeting against Rayo.
On the occasion of this 37th and penultimate day of La Liga, Carlo Ancelotti will also be deprived of Vinicius Jr. and Marco Asensio.
