Real Madrid will be without superstar striker Karim Benzema for their Champions League group stage battle against RB Leipzig on Wednesday. The French superstar was injured at Celtic last week on matchday one, having been diagnosed with a muscle injury. He didn't play against Mallorca on Sunday either in La Liga play, but the team has done fine without him.

After he went off against Celtic, Real rolled to a 3-0 win, and they won on Sunday against Mallorca, 4-1. Carlo  Ancelotti played Eden Hazard in place of Benzema in both matches.

In Tuesday's press conference ahead of the Leipzig match, Real boss Carlo Ancelotti hinted that Benzema could possibly feature on Sunday in the Madrid derby against Atletico Madrid.
