Benzema set to return in time for Madrid derby
French striker Karim Benzema is set to return from injury just in time for the fierce derby between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane would be elated by this refreshing news after his team’s struggle in front of goal in recent times.
Benzema has been the talisman for Real Madrid this season; with 17 goals in as many games for the Los Blancos.
Some sources suggest Benzema could return earlier to face Real Sociedad next month.
But a return against Atletico on March 7th is more likely.
The game which is set to hold at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano could be a key decider in the race for La Liga this term.
Atletico seem to have lost their way in recent times but they still hold a 3-point advantage over their rivals despite having one game in hand.
Although Real Madrid doesn’t intend to rush Benzema back into action.
But Zidane wouldn’t mind having his top scorer back in the team for one of their toughest and most important encounters this season.
