With or without Benzema? This is the question that resonates the most on the eve of the clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, in the Champions League. Absent from the Madrid group for the trip to Villarreal on Sunday (0-0), the French international is well on the list of summoned to go to the Parc des Princes. Real Madrid also attempted a bluff by presenting their striker at a press conference on Monday, where Karim Benzema gave some indications on his state of form.

“I worked a lot of hours and I feel much better. After training we will decide if I can play. I feel good, but I have to feel better on the pitch. It’s hard to be off the field. I worked morning, noon and night to get there. Mentally I’m ready, but now I have to see how I’m doing on the pitch. It’s a great game and I’m here to help the team.”he assured at first.

A Real Madrid dependent on Karim Benzema?

After his premature exit due to a muscle injury during the La Liga match against Elche (2-2), the former Lyonnais therefore remains uncertain, but assures that he did not make the trip for nothing. “I will always push for my team, because otherwise I would have stayed in Madrid. But it’s also not about forcing yourself to be injured longer, because it’s bad for the team. I always think of my team and before making a decision, I have to take my feelings into account..

Everything suggests that Karim Benzema will be there for this shock, at least for a few minutes. But during his speech, the 34-year-old center forward did not wish to submit a clear answer and assures that Real Madrid can win this match without him. “I don’t think the team is dependent (on me), because we also win without me. The important thing is that I did everything to be here. I hope to be 100% for the game. We shouldn’t take any risks, because the season is long.”. For Carlo Ancelotti, his coach, if Karim Benzema “I’m fine, he has to play”. PSG is warned…
