In a nightmarish match for him, Karim Benzema missed a penalty before injuring his thigh three weeks before the match against PSG.
Real Madrid suffered a great disappointment this Sunday against Elche. On the verge of the red zone, the Valencian Community club surprised everyone by leading for a long time by two goals at the Santiago Bernabéu, before conceding the equalizer late in the game. A penalty from Modric and a header from Militao allowed Madrid to save their honor. For his part, it was not the day of Karim Benzema, who missed a penalty early in the game by shooting high up. It is the first time since he has been in the White House that KB9 has missed a penalty, although he has not always been the usual goalkeeper for Real. The visitors later scored twice and the French striker was leveled through injury.

Around game time, Karim Benzema left the field clutching his thigh, which obviously does not indicate anything good for the meringues. Especially three weeks before the game against PSG, although Karim Benzema especially wanted to be careful when leaving as soon as he felt discomfort in his left leg. An injury that comes a few hours after the anger of Carlo Ancelotti, who complained about the excessively fast pace of the matches since the beginning of the year. It must be said that Real Madrid has chained the semifinals and the final of the Spanish Super Cup, then the Copa del Rey and finally La Liga now.
