Real Madrid handed injury boost ahead of derby

Real Madrid given massive injury boost ahead of Madrid derby

March 5, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
Los Blancos have been hit hard by injuries all season long, but a key member of the squad will be back for the crucial match vs Los Colchoneros.

Real Madrid's luck when it comes to their strikers changed overnight, as one of their top footballers has been cleared to play the key game against Atlético on Sunday.

Yesterday, the team was forced to rule Mariano out of the Madrid Derby, which left Zinedine Zidane with Hugo Duro, Real Madrid Castilla's striker, as his only option at No.9. Today, the French boss gladly welcomed none other than Karim Benzema to the team's training sessions, and now the footballer will be ready to lead Los Blancos' attack at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The player struggled with a groin injury that left him out of four games, including the team's UEFA Champions League meeting against Atalanta last month. Now, the footballer is ready to help Los Blancos in their title defense, as he chose to share on his social media account.

The striker will be key to Real Madrid's intentions of cutting the gap between them and Los Colchoneros, and the only way to do so is by keeping their unbeaten run at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Benzema's presence on the pitch will help the struggling Spanish team, who have been forced to play without at least two of their top footballers for almost the entire season. For this game, the defending champions will have to make do without Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard, and the aforementioned Mariano.
