Bad news for Real Madrid fans before the derby

It is not confirmed that Real Madrid star Karim Benzema will participate in the derby in the Spanish capital against Atletico Madrid on Sunday, after suffering a thigh injury in a match against Celtic last week.

Benzema did not train with his colleagues until Thursday, according to a report by the Spanish sports newspaper, Mundo Deportivo.

After Real Madrid's victory over Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday, coach Carlo Ancelotti said that Benzema's participation in the capital's summit depends on his return to training on Saturday.

But Benzema will not be the only absentee from the derby, as his colleague Lucas Vazquez will not be able to participate either, while Eder Militao is just returning from a muscle strain.
