Karim Benzema

Real Madrid have been handed a massive injury boost with Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy back in the squad to face Celta Vigo. 

Madrid return to action today after the international break as they continue to hunt for the title. The Los Blancos are at the top of the table, nine points clear of second-placed Sevilla who have 57.

Carlo Ancelotti will be keen for his side to bounce back following a 4-0 loss to Barcelona in the El Clasico last time.

Ahead of the clash, Benzema and Mendy have returned to the squad having sat out the recent encounter against Barcelona just before the international break.

Gareth Bale is also back in the squad, after a starring role with Wales in their 2022 World Cup qualifying playoff win over Austria, but he is unlikely to feature from the start at the Estadio Balaidos.
