Benzema resigns: Karim is still on the sidelines and would be absent against PSG

Days go by and the news does not change. The French striker Real Madrid, Karim Benzemaremains a doubt for next Tuesday’s match at the Parc des Princes against Paris Saint-Germain for the Champions League, after he will train again outside the group. While it seems that defender Ferland Mendy will be ready after training this Thursday.

The ‘9’, who was injured on Sunday, January 23 against Elche, is still unable to join his teammates when there are five days left for the Champions League duel, the first leg of the round of 16 in Paris.

As reported by the Madrid club on its website, the attacker “he combined work inside and on the pitch with and without the ball”, which indicates that he is surely ruled out for this Saturday’s visit to Villarreal.

The ‘jet’ returns from the left

For his part, Ferland Mendy, out since last week’s Copa del Rey quarter-final match against Athletic Club, makes Carlo Ancelotti more optimistic that he completed a part with the group, as did striker Mariano, for which could even enter the list of summoned for the clash against Unai Emery’s men.

Pre-PSG exam

The Real Madrid has a more than committed match at La Cerámica against a Villarreal in clear progression, already installed in European positions and close to the Championsagainst which they defend their six-point advantage over Sevilla, who will host another rising team, Elche, in the first game of matchday twenty-four.

The difficult victory over Granada with a solitary goal from Marco Asensio and Sevilla’s stumble in Pamplona, ​​where the Croatian Ivan Rakitic missed a maximum penalty in extra time, gave Carlo Ancelotti’s team an income that was not decisive but very important in a stretch of the season in which the whites are not exactly going through their best moment and resume the Champions League with a tremendous tie against PSGwhose first chapter will write on Tuesday in the Parc des Princes.
