Hamstring injury for Benzema

Real Madrid have confirmed it is a hamstring injury keeping striker Karim Benzema out of the Audi Cup.

Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo were left in Madrid as Los Blancos travelled to Germany for the four-way tournament that also involves hosts Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur and Milan.

Madrid have on Tuesday confirmed the reason behind the France international’s non-involvement, citing an injury to his right hamstring.

AS notes Benzema picked up the injury against Manchester City but was able to play against Milan, while he is also expected to miss this weekend’s trip to Valerenga.
