Real Madrid lose Benzema for Inter Champions League clash?

Real Madrid could be without Karim Benzema for the Champions League showdown against Inter, as he went off with a hamstring problem.

The striker lasted just 17 minutes in this evening’s LaLiga game against Real Sociedad.

He asked to be substituted and the initial reports suggest it is a problem in his left hamstring.

Benzema was replaced by Luka Jovic and Marca are already reporting he is a major doubt to feature in the next two matches against Inter and Atletico Madrid.

Although both Real Madrid and Inter have already booked their place in the Champions League Round of 16, they go head-to-head on Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabeu to see who will go through as group winners.

That should in theory give them an easier draw going forward in the knockout rounds of the competition.

Inter are also missing a striker, because Joaquin Correa limped off clutching his left hamstring during the 3-0 Serie A victory away to Roma this evening.
