Several fans were surprised to see Karim Benzema limping during the match against Rayo Vallecano. In the post-match press conference, Carlo Ancelotti was asked about this subject, and the Italian coach responded that it was because he had a cut on his foot.
The Italian coach's statements relieved the fans, but Benzema's representative, Karim Djaziri, shared photographs of how the Frenchman's foot was left this morning. The wound was on the right foot's instep.
He apparently had a stomp after only 10 minutes of play. From there, he was noticed limping in certain match acts, but he played the entire game. Benzema is battling Robert Lewandowski for the top scorer spot, and despite being injured, he scored the game's first goal.
Real Madrid won 2-1, and Benzema needed 5 stitches at the end of the game, making him questionable for Saturday's game against Sevilla.
