Benzema ‘fit’ for Clasico

Marca are reporting that Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema will be fit to face Barcelona in Sunday’s Clasico at the Bernabeu.

There had been fears that the player would not make it after he picked up a knock at La Rosaleda last Saturday against Malaga.

However, it now appears the 26-year-old has made a full recovery and will take his place in Los Blancos’ line-up.

The news comes as a welcome boost for Coach Carlo Ancelotti, who saw his attacking options stretched slightly after watching Jese Rodriguez pick up a serious injury on Tuesday.
