Real Madrid star looking forward to Lyon clash

Benzema has been struggling with a thigh muscle injury recently.

“I’m ready to play, I do not know if I’ll start because we don’t know the eleven the coach will pick. Anyway, I know that if I play either from the beginning or the last 30 minutes, I know I will have a good match. The muscles are better, but there’s still some pain due to all the work I’ve done,” he told AS.

“I look forward to returning to Lyon, I am very happy. I will see my friends and my family, I still have many friends at the club, but the important thing is the game. It will be an historic moment. I expect a good reception, because I think I left a good impression there.”
