Big shock.

Real Madrid's Karim Benzema was unable to take part in his team's training on Sunday night due to injury, making his chances of being against Atalanta next Wednesday in the Champions League.

The French international missed his team's victory over Valladolid in La Liga on Saturday due to injury, and coach Zinedine Zidane announced his position on the Atalanta match.

Benzema's injury is a muscle injury that is said to have come to him during the Valencia game, with other sayings that she raided him during training on Thursday and caused him to miss him ever since.

The Spanish newspaper "As" in a report indicated that Zidane was excluded from the participation of Benzema in practice due to injury after his inability to train today, to be made the final decision on it in the last few hours.

The 34-year-old will undergo a final test to determine the extent of the injury today, and it will be decided on Monday whether or not he will participate based on how he feels and by the decision of Real Madrid's medical staff as well.

Zidane will probably do what he said after the Valladolid match, "we will not risk Benzema" for fear that his injury will worsen and his absence will be prolonged so that he has only one option: relying on Mariano Diaz.

For the other injured (Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Rodrigo, Odorizola, and Federico Valverde) they have returned to training on the grass but on their own, i.e. they are also out of the calculations against Atalanta.

Zidane is looking to Italy with only 13 players, as was the case with the Valladolid match, with a constellation of Castilla academy players filling the bench.
