Karim Benzema out for Inter Milan clash

Karim Benzema has been ruled out of Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with Inter Milan due to a hamstring issue, according to AS.

The France international was substituted after 16 minutes during Madrid’s 2-0 win at Real Sociedad on Saturday and tests on Monday morning revealed the extent of the injury. It is enough for him to miss the match with Inter at the Santiago Bernabéu on Tuesday, but he could make it back in time for Madrid’s derby with rivals Atlético on Sunday.

Benzema has scored 17 goals and provided eight assists this season.
