And both clubs will be encouraged after Real coach Carlo Ancelotti admitted he could drop Benzema for this weekend's game with Levante.
He said: "Benzema is the first-choice striker but (Alvaro) Morata might play against Levante.
"Though he hasn't scored, I'm very happy with Benzema."
Benzema is a target for Real boo-boys this season which has sparked talk of a move away in January.
