Drama in Madrid! Benzema And 2 other “titles” could…
Real Madrid can cost him dearly his victory at Sound Moix on Monday night against Mallorca (0-3). Until three players left the locker room, being the most worrying case that of Karim Benzema. The ‘9’ had to leave the field at minute 86 with a strong pain in the ankle of the left leg, leaving the team with 10 because Carlo Ancelotti had already exhausted the substitutions. Rodrygo left without being able to press with his right foot, while Ferland Mendy also came out hit by a sting in the thigh.
Benzema had lesionado on January 21 by a problem with the right thigh that he had 21 days of fall. The 34-year-old lost three games and was forced to play the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Paris Saint-Germain, where grief played a part during the game. Now they’re jumping the alarms again with the ‘9’ just before the classic in front of FC Barcelona and when he went through one of the sweetest moments of the season, since he had just scored in the last days of La Liga and scored a hat-trick against PSG last week.
The attacker felt in the area between the sóleo and the just left the ankle then headed a cross from Marcelo. The arrival ended at the bottom of the network and put definitive figures to the party, but the Frenchman fell badly and cried a minute after the goal stretched on the lawn. Madrid doctors assisted him, helping him off the pitch. Fortunately for the ‘merengues’, the game was already settled and only five minutes remained.
Previously, at minute 61, Rodrygo injured by a strong pisotón from Antonio José Raíllo. The Brazilian immediately asked for the change and went off without being able to press his right foot, which seems to be the most serious injury of the three suffered by Madrid players in front of Mallorca. On his side, Mendy also asked to be substituted at minute 79 with right thigh discomfort. The three players will test on Tuesday to find out the extent of his injuries.
Madrid will arrive more rested at the Classic
With Benzema, Rdorygo and Mendy doubts, Carlo Ancelotti will have a significant advantage against Sunday’s crash. While the Whites have the week off, Barca are due to travel to Istanbul to face Galatasaray on Thursday in the Europe League round of 16. The qualifiers are fully open after last week’s 0-0 in Catalonia, whereby Xavi Hernández will have to bet by his gala eleven in Turkey, alone 72 hours of the Classic at the Santiago Bernabéu. In the event of a tie there will be an extension.
