Karim Benzema’s Saudi adventure is not getting any better. Already in a complicated situation for several weeks following the soap opera of a possible departure this winter, the Frenchman continues to miss matches. While he was finally back in the team, the 2022 Golden Ball will once again be sidelined for some time.

In a post on its social networks, the Al-Ittihad club announced its players forfeited for the next meeting, with Karim Benzema among them. Having just returned from a calf injury, the Frenchman is therefore not part of the group to challenge Al-Okhdood. He could also miss the trip for the quarter-final second leg of the Asian C1 against Al-Hilal. Having only taken part in 3 matches in the last 9, the end of the season promises to be a long one for the former Real Madrid striker.
