Benzema named in Real Madrid squad against PSG

Real Madrid CF are travelling to France to face Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their last-16 UEFA Champions League clash, which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday. Interestingly, Karim Benzema has been included in manager Carlo Ancelotti’s squad list.

Benzema has been injured for three weeks, and has not figured in a single match since picking up a hamstring injury against Elche on January 23. However, after a string of dismal results that included their elimination from the Copa del Rey, it appears as though Los Blancos are now willing to risk it with Benzema.

Last Saturday, fans hoped that Benzema could be back to log in some minutes against Villarreal at La Ceramica but he was not even on the bench. The match ended in a draw, and it was clear that Benzema’s finishing touch was missing from the Real Madrid attack.
