Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is optimistic that his star striker Karim Benzema will be fit to play in Sunday’s crucial LaLiga derby against Atletico Madrid.
Due to injury Real Madrid’s leading scorer has missed the last three games, but Zinedine Zidane says he is “much healthier.”
This season in all competitions netting 17 goals, Benzema is Madrid’s top scorer, but he has missed the club’s last three games due to an undisclosed injury.
“We hope he can be with us, but we have to wait and see because he still hasn’t trained with the team,” Zidane said according to the official website.
“We’ll assess the situation tomorrow. He’s OK. Karim’s injury is much better and we’ll take a look at him.”
