Karim Benzema has a 50/50 chance of being available for Real Madrid for their upcoming UEFA Champions league group stage match-up with Inter according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Frenchman continued to train separately from his teammates in training yesterday and the results of the tests done today to assess his condition will be fundamental for understanding whether or not he will be able to return to action against the Nerazzurri.
Real Madrid club captain Sergio Ramos, who picked up a hamstring injury on national team duty, has very little chance of being able to recover in time for the match at San Siro on Wednesday night.
The report goes on to explain that the only certainty to play in the defence at the moment is Raphael Varane, who has overcome his recent injury problem. Nacho Fernandez could potentially partner him at the heart of the defence.
Eder Militao and Casemiro will both be swab tested for COVID-19 today and Zinedine Zidane has his fingers crossed that both will be negative.
