The Awaiting Classico,Who Will Replace Karim Benzema?

After suffering a leg injury, Karim Benzema is expected to miss Real Madrid’s El Classico match against Barcelona on Sunday night.

Karim Benzema, a French football superstar, has been Real Madrid’s most impressive player in the 2021-22 season,

scoring 32 goals and providing 13 assists in 34 appearances. However, due to an injury,

he will miss the El Clasico match between Real Madrid and arch-rivals Barcelona,

which is set to take place at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday night,

Who will replace Karim Benzema against Barcelona?

In response to Benzema’s absence, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti told reporters that the squad can still win the El Clasico without him.

“Yes, I believe we can do it.” He’s certainly a key member of our group,

but he generally gets the job done, and we now have to keep that job while looking for other options upstairs,” Ancelotti remarked. The head coach, on the other hand, has not revealed who will replace the 34-year-old in the team for the match against Barcelona



Ancelotti noted, when asked about Benzema’s injury, saying the Frenchman is 34 years old and that injuries do happen.

“They are minor annoyances, and he has swiftly recovered.

He has made a difference since his return. We have two more weeks to work with him, after which he will make a difference once more. He doesn’t bother me about not playing tomorrow because we still have time for him to make a difference at the end of the season “The coach came to an end.

How will Benzema’s absence impact El Clasico?

It’s difficult for any team to lose its leading scorer,

especially when the player is of the calibre of Karim Benzema.

As a result, Real Madrid will need to find a way to keep the goals coming.

Madrid would have wanted to have Benzema available with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang firing on all cylinders for Barcelona.
