Benzema doubtful

Real Madrid might be without their star striker Karim Benzema when they clash against Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals tie.

Benzema suffered a thigh injury and was forced to be brought out in the third quarter of the game during France’s friendly fixture against Turkey.

He felt a little pinch in his thigh.

The 23-year-old ace has been in tremendous for Real Madrid this season, having found the back of the net 8 times in his previous 5 matches.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp’s pacey winger, Gareth Bale, might also fail to break into the line-up after the 21-year-old Welsh suffered a grade one strain while training for his national side. The recovery time for the following injury usually stands at between 7 and 10 days.

Gareth Bale has already missed a majority of the last three months after picking up a back injury while playing against Newcastle United back in January.
