Karim Benzema out for two weeks

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has been told he faces two weeks on the sidelines following a thigh injury suffered during Tuesday’s 1-1 Champions League draw with CSKA Moscow, reports Marca.

The Frenchman had to be helped from the field just 13 minutes into the match – played in sub-zero temperatures – after attempting to volley the ball from outside the penalty area, and his worst fears were confirmed on Wednesday morning when he was subjected to medical tests back in the Spanish capital.

Benzema will now miss this weekend’s Madrid ‘derbi’ with Rayo Vallecano at the Campo de F
