Karim Benzema holder with Real Madrid five weeks after his withdrawal from the World Cup


The striker of the France team, injured before the first pool match of the World Cup, starts this Friday evening for the resumption

The 2022 Ballon d'Or is back.

Karim Benzema, injured and forfeited for the World Cup just before the Blues' first match against Australia, is back five weeks later on the club grounds with Real Madrid.

His coach Carlo Ancelotti has decided to start him for Madrid's trip to Valladolid for the 15th day of the championship.

The one who recently announced his international retirement, the day the Blues returned to Concorde, was injured in training when he arrived in Qatar.

Benzema left the France group in the process, while doubt still hangs over his ability to potentially return from the knockout stages against Poland.

The top scorer in La Liga last season was also back in training with Madrid, after a vacation in Reunion, the day of the quarter-final of the Blues against England.

The tricolor striker was also noted for his lack of support on social networks for the rest of his teammates, until the semi-final against Morocco.

The fact remains that, the 2022 World Cup forgotten, Karim Benzema will be able to resume the course of his season after more than two months without playing in a club.

His last tenure in an official match under the colors of the "White House" dates back to October 19 and a victory against Elche (3-0).

Real Madrid's number 9 is lined up alongside other Globalists like Belgian Thibault Courtois or Brazilian Eder Militao.

On the other hand, the other Blues Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga are on the bench.
