Due to minor injuries, Karim Benzema and Éder Milito will miss Real Madrid’s Sunday Spanish league game at Mallorca, according to coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding their availability, both players will accompany the club to the Club World Cup in Morocco the following week, according to Ancelotti.
Both Militio and Karim are going through testing. Nothing significant, according to Ancelotti, who spoke on Saturday. They won’t play tomorrow, but they will travel to the Club World Cup with the team. I doubt that they will be ready for the opening game when they return.
Thursday’s 2-0 victory over Valencia required the Ballon d’Or winner Benzema and defender Milito to be removed early in the second half.
Madrid sits five points behind Barcelona for second place in the league.
With 13 goals in 21 games in all competitions, Benzema is Madrid’s top scorer.
