For the team’s Thursday home match against Cadiz, Real Madrid attacker Karim Benzema is listed as ‘doubtful.’ It appears that Benzema will miss the final match before the next World Cup break because he hasn’t yet joined the team in training.

The Frenchman has been battling muscle fatigue for the past month, and even though he returned to the previous match against Celtic, it appears that he is still having trouble. Despite there being no official injury report, Antonio Rudiger will also miss the game.

It’s obvious that the majority of football players in Europe are considering how to keep healthy for the forthcoming World Cup, and Benzema and Rudiger appear to be no exception. After the humiliating loss to Rayo Vallecano, where they also ceded the top spot in the standings to Barcelona, Real Madrid needs to recover badly.
