Karim Benzema hasn't been training much with the rest of his teammates during Real Madrid's preseason stage in the United States, and has not featured a single minute over the two friendlies Los Blancos have played. Zinedine Zidane explained on Friday that the striker has a hip injury, and while Zidane was hoping that Benzema could be available for the last friendly against Bayern, he might not be ready yet, according to AS.

That could be very problematic for Madrid, given that Benzema's physical condition will not be good enough to feature in a very competitive UEFA Supercup Final against Sevilla. Cristiano Ronaldo will not recover from his knee injury in time for the match either and Bale just got back from his vacation after Wales' successful run in the Eurocup, meaning that Real's offensive line could need Morata, Vázquez and possibly another player replacing the BBC in the big stage.
