The French striker opted to skip the first half of today's drill as a precautionary measure which included weight and resistance training. He joined in for the second phase and was able to complete the training plan designed by club fitness coach Antonio Pintus.

Benzema showed nos signs of discomfort for the 20 minutes the session lasted and indeed was leading the group in sprints that included Marcelo, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Sergio Díaz.


The Madrid backroom staff are optimistic that Benzema will be ready for the second session of the day when ball-work will be the pivotal discipline in the training programme.
