Benzema fit for Clasico – report

Reports in the Spanish Press this morning suggest that Karim Benzema will be ready for El Clasico this weekend.

Real Madrid host Barcelona on Sunday looking for the three points that could take them seven clear of their Catalan rivals.

But Marca claim that Los Blancos will be able to call upon the services of the France international after a slight injury scare.

The striker was brought off early on in their 1-0 win at Malaga on Saturday, suffering a bruised quadricep after a clash with Cristiano Ronaldo.

But the newspaper believes that it is just a slight knock, and Benzema will be back for the derby at Santiago Bernabeu.
