After scoring his second goal against Mallorca and the third for his team in the match that ended with the royal victory (3-0), the French striker was unable to complete the match, because of the pain he felt in the leg.

While waiting for an MRI on Wednesday, Benzema is now trying to do everything in his power to be able to catch up with the Clasico battle scheduled for next Sunday against Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu, in the 29th round of the Spanish League.

But Marca newspaper confirmed that there are great doubts about the presence of Benzema in the Clasico.

She pointed out that pessimism prevails in Real Madrid about joining the match after the player found himself today in a poor condition.

She stated that Real Madrid will not force Benzema to play the Clasico despite its importance, as Real Madrid officials believe that there is a good margin of points in La Liga, so the meeting is not as important as facing Paris Saint-Germain.

The technical staff of Real Madrid aims to have all its players fully prepared in the upcoming matches of the Champions League.

This contradicts the previous news that the Frenchman is ready for Sunday's match.

Earlier in the day, the Spanish program "El Chiringuito" confirmed that Benzema did not feel any fracture or rupture, and he will be ready to play with Real Madrid in the Clasico.

The player himself also answered a question in a video clip after the Mallorca meeting, regarding participation in the Clasico, by confirming that he is "good and fine".

For his part, the Frenchman Ferland Mendy also suffers from muscle pain, and he will rest today, and tomorrow he will go to the Sports City in order to undergo tests that will determine the nature of his injury.

In turn, the Brazilian Rodrygo sustained an injury during yesterday's match and had to leave the field, but it seems that the matter is not serious, according to the player himself on social media.

With the exception of these three players, the rest of the Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti's team is in good physical condition before facing Barcelona, ​​which the Royal will start preparing for tomorrow.
