But of course the calendar was not easy for the French striker. With so many games every week, injuries are more common in football and Karim Benzema has not avoided them.

How serious is Benzema’s injury and will he come back in time for the World Cup?

Karim Benzema is having one of the best moments of his career but has missed some games recently. Unfortunately, the Frenchman was injured again this October and Real Madrid and his country are very concerned about this.

According to Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, Karim Benzema is suffering from muscle fatigue. This situation ruled him out of the game against Sevilla in Matchday 11 of the 2022–23 LaLiga season.

Unfortunately, Real Madrid won’t have Benzema for Tuesday’s game against RB Leipzig in Matchday 5 of the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League season. The Spanish side has already secured a spot in the next round, but of course his absence will be very important for them.

Regarding his return, the team thinks that Karim Benzema will be available next weekend for the game against Girona in October 30. At the time, his appearance at the FIFA World Cup is not at risk, but it will be important for him to full recover in order to be healthy for Qatar 2022.
