Real Madrid will continue to monitor Karim Benzema’s fitness ahead of their trip to Camp Nou.
“El Clasico” will take place on Sunday, from 21:00
This match is also of great importance for the fact that it can decide everything regarding the title of the champion.
Barcelona leads the table with 65 points, nine more than Real Madrid
“Los Blancos” can enter this match with a big absence, that of Benzema.
The Frenchman picked up an injury in midweek against Liverpool in the Champions League, a game in which he scored.
Carlo Ancelotti then confirmed he had withdrawn Benzema from the game as a precaution as Real won 1-0 and qualified for the quarter-finals.
“Marca” has reported that the 35-year-old did not join the rest of the team in the training session after their return to Valdebebas and trained only in the gym.
Ancelotti is said to now give Benzema until the last minute to prove his ability and will risk if necessary to play him, due to the great importance of this match.
