Real Madrid striker Benzema struggling to make Tottenham clash

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema may struggle to make their Champions League date with Tottenham.

The 23-year-old was substituted in the 75th minute of France's goalless friendly draw with Croatia last night after suffering a knock to this thigh.

Les Bleus coach Laurent Blanc said after the game: "He felt a little pinch in his thigh."

Benzema, who appears likely to miss this weekend's La Liga clash with Sporting Gijon, has scored eight goals in his last five games for Madrid.
