Real Madrid will take to the field against Sevilla in what is set to be an anticipated clash in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Saturday. The home side has had a bittersweet season and is currently riling on the fourth position and Sevilla is on the third spot. For the defending European Champions, it is unusual to be at any place below the second. For years, Real Madrid and Barcelona have been the two title contending teams with an occasional push of Atletico Madrid. Now, the Galacticos are separated by ten points from the table-toppers and arch-rivals Barcelona. Tonight, they will aim to reduce the gap.
Good news for Real Madrid is that their injury woes have been alleviated by the return of their veteran French Striker Karim Benzema. Head coach Santiago Solari downplayed the hand injury the Frenchman has been struggling with, denying that he would undergo surgery to repair the fracture.
According to EFE, Solari said in the interview, “He has a finger injury, but we don’t think that it’s a problem that will affect his career as a player, neither tomorrow nor on Wednesday,” Solari said during a press conference on the eve of Saturday’s game.
“He’s looked good in training and he’s in a good mood. We’re happy that he’s with us,” the Argentine coach added.
“Karim is our reference in the attacking line. He has had a great year at both the personal and sporting level,” Solari added.
The match will also be a great platform for Sevilla to increase their gap against Real Madrid.
