Karim Benzema and Eder Militao BOTH go off injured for Real Madrid two weeks before Liverpool Champions League clash

  • last year
REAL MADRID has suffered a DOUBLE injury scare ahead of their upcoming Champions League clash with Liverpool.

Los Blancos, who defeated Jurgen Klopp's side in last season's final, face the Reds again in the first leg of the last-16 at Anfield on February 21.

However, they could be sweating on the fitness of their talisman striker Karim Benzema.

The French star limped off in tonight's La Liga clash with Valencia.

And defender Eder Militao was also forced off during the same game.

Brazilian Militao was forced off after just 36 minutes at the Bernabeu after falling to the turf in agony.

Initial reports are claiming that he has damaged his right groin or that it could be a potential adductor injury.

But it will be French striker Benzema that will have boss Carlo Ancelotti feeling the most anxious.

The 35-year-old, who was forced to pull out of his country’s World Cup squad through injury, pulled up after accelerating clear of the defense on the hour mark.

He then left the field with what appeared to be a right hamstring problem.
