This is the question that resonates the most on the eve of the clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid in the Champions League. Absent from the Madrid group for the trip to Villarreal on Sunday  the French international is on the list of the players who travelled to France.

Real Madrid also attempted a bluff by presenting their striker at a press conference on Monday, where Karim Benzema gave some indications about his fitness.

“I worked a lot of hours and I feel much better. After training we will decide if I can play. I feel good, but I have to feel better on the pitch. It’s hard to be off the field. I worked morning, noon and night to get there. Mentally I’m ready, but now I have to see how I’m doing on the pitch. It’s a great match and I’m here to help the team,” he said initially.

After his premature exit due to a muscle injury during the La Liga match against Elche (2-2), the former Lyon man therefore remains a doubt, but assures that he did not make the trip for nothing.

“I will always push for my team, because otherwise I would have stayed in Madrid. But it’s also not about forcing yourself to be injured longer, because it’s bad for the team. I always think of my team and before making a decision, I have to take my feelings into account.

Everything suggests that Karim Benzema will be there for this clash, at least for a few minutes. But during his speech, the 34-year-old center forward did not provide a clear answer and assures that Real Madrid can win this match without him.

“I don’t think the team is dependent (on me), because we also win without me. The important thing is that I did everything to be here. I hope to be 100% for the game. We must not take any risks, because the season is long. For Carlo Ancelotti, his coach, if Karim Benzema “is fine, he must play”.
