Benzema set for Clasico return

Karim Benzema is set to return to the Real Madrid starting XI for the game against Barcelona tomorrow.

The French striker missed the Champions League clash with Schalke on Tuesday after suffering a quadriceps injury last weekend.

However, Marca claim that the goalscorer will be back for El Clasico on Sunday night, alongside Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The paper writes that during Los Blancos’ training session this morning, Coach Carlo Ancelotti played an 11 vs. 11, led by the so-called ‘BBC’.

Luka Modric, Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria made up the midfield three, whilst Dani Carvajal, Pepe, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo were the back.

Diego Lopez played in goal, and is set to take his usual place between the sticks for the League match.
