Benzema injured, in doubt for Inter and Atletico

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema suffered an injury during the match against Real Sociedad in La Liga.

The Frenchman was forced to leave the field after only 17 minutes in the game in the challenge at Real Seguros Stadium.

He asked to be replaced and the first reports are that he suffered an injury to his left leg.

Luka Jovic took Benzema’s place in the match, while Marca has announced that the striker is in great doubt for the next two matches, that against Inter and Atletico Madrid.

Both Real and the Nerazzurri have qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League, but Tuesday’s match at the Santiago Bernabeu will decide the group leader.
