Real Madrid receives catastrophic news despite the victory over Celtic

The French striker felt discomfort in his right knee in the 25th minute and decided to leave the match pending medical tests

Karim Benzema was returning to the competition where last year he particularly shone, the Champions League. The French player was the best player in the competition and made his debut against Glasgow Cetic at Celtic Park. A premiere that has been worrying due to an injury to his right knee in the 25th minute of the match and he had to leave the pitch in the 30th minute.

The French striker started at the point of attack. A well-known attack since the Frenchman has come out accompanied by Fede Valverde as the right winger and Vinicius JR on the left wing, the usual striker in the knockout phases of the last Champions League and in important matches such as the European Super Cup.

Karim Benzema started the game somewhat inactive since Celtic came out very pressurizing and suffocating Madrid when their ball came out. Leaving the forward very far from the play. Although the first warning was not long in coming with a Chilean attempt that did not connect well in the 11th minute of the match.

Given Karim’s inactivity in attack, he has decided to go down a lot of meters to help Real Madrid get the ball out and relieve the team under pressure from the locals. Something that Madrid has been grateful for, being able to spin faster plays at the first touch, teaming up with Kroos and Modric to break the pressure.

The scare was given in the 25th minute when Karim was unable to start a move by Real Madrid and he put his hands to his knee with clear gestures of pain. Something that did not look good and that despite being tested for a couple of minutes, has decided to leave the pitch for Eden Hazard.

A particularly sensitive loss for Real Madrid since Karim Benzema is the leader and benchmark in attack, losing a vital footballer in the months leading up to the World Cup where the calendar is very tight.
