Karim Benzema’s season with Real Madrid has been disrupted by numerous injuries. His absence ahead of the World Cup break also coincided with Los Blancos’ downturn in form. Some people had even questioned whether the Frenchman was not playing in order to avoid injury and reach the tournament in Qatar 100 per cent. It is pretty clear that that was not the case at all.

Both Carlo Ancelotti and Aurelien Tchouameni have rubbished those claims in recent times. On the other hand, there is more bad news for Benzema.

As reported by the Mirror, according to numerous reports, Benzema left the French national team’s most recent training session early. He was fit enough to be reintroduced into the squad but was forced to withdraw early with what looks like a fresh thigh injury.

Scans are set to be taken over the next few days to assess the seriousness of the problem but it is safe to say that the situation is worrying. At the very least, Benzema is expected to miss France’s opening game against Australia.

This season is turning into a bit of a nightmare for Benzema. The current Ballon d’Or winner just has not managed to find any rhythm and continuing due to constant fitness issues.

It remains to be seen how serious his latest issue is and one can only hope that he will be fit enough to still take part in France’s World Cup campaign.

The French national team have had some pretty bad luck leading up to the tournament. Both Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante are missing out, and they had played a key part in their triumph in 2018. Christopher Nkunku has been knocked out of the World Cup through an injury suffered in training recently. And let’s see what the situation is with Benzema.
