Jack87 news today, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says the bk8 star striker will be out of the Nations League World Cup warm-up matches if the injured Karim Benzema is out of next week’s La Liga derby against Atletico Madrid.

Benzema, asianbookie a favorite for next month’s Ballon d’Or, suffered a right thigh injury in Tuesday’s 3-0 Champions League win over Celtic.

Ancelotti said on Saturday: “Karim? We’ll see if he can play in the derby. For sure, if he doesn’t play in the derby, he won’t be in his national team.”

World Cup winners France continue to prepare for their 2018 title defence against Austria on September 22 and Denmark three days later.

Ancelotti added of the French striker: bk8 asianbookie “These are all things that could happen.

“There was a small problem, but last year he also had a physical problem in December and we were able to deal with it. This year, it’s the same.”

The 34-year-old striker faltered after a half-hour at Parkhead while Real continued to run out of impressive winners as they started their title defence in style.

“Without him, the team played very well against Celtic, especially in attack,” Ancelotti said ahead of Sunday’s La Liga game against Real Mallorca.

Eden Hazard will take over from Benzema on Sunday, as he did in Glasgow.

Praising the Belgian’s performance in Scotland, Ancelotti noted:asianbookie bk8 “Benzema has no natural substitute.

“He is the best centre forward in the world and there is no one in the market who can replace him.”

Whether Benzema is fit to face Atletico will depend partly on the test, but mostly on his shrewd coach.

“We have a ton of information, physical and technical. I take them all into account, but just to confirm what my own eyes are telling me.

“If my eyes tell me a player is in good shape, but the data shows he’s tired, he’ll stay.”
