There is good news for Real Madrid fans after French international Karim Benzema trained normally in Los Angeles on Monday and is aiming to get his first preseason game minutes in the friendly against Club America in San Francisco on Tuesday evening.
Real Madrid’s training session on Monday saw the French striker need attention with a problem with his knee but he managed to wrap up the session and is expected to feature in the game against the Liga MX side. Borja Mayoral will also be available for selection after complications with his covid status delayed his arrival in the United States.
Meanwhile, Ferland Mendy left Monday’s session around 10 minutes before its conclusion, as the French left-back struggles with a lingering injury problem. Mendy returned to the locker room accompanied by the club’s physios, and is a doubt for the american shock.
One man who is definitely offside is Dani Carvajal, who for the third consecutive day was unable to train with his teammates as he continues his recovery from a sprained ankle. The right-back is trying to be fit for Madrid’s last US tour game on Friday.
Ancelotti’s men were very intense and focused in Monday’s session with their immediate priority being the European Super Cup in Helsinki (Finland) against German team Eintracht Frankfurt on August 10.
Madrid will face Club America on Tuesday night at Oracle Park, the club’s home stadium The San Francisco Giants baseball team against the Mexican soccer club’s most decorated team in the form of Club America.
Los Blancos will then return to Los Angeles to play against Juventus on July 30 to complete the Soccer Champions Tour in the United States.
