Karim Benzema is back. Having recovered from his injuries, the captain was back in training with the squad at Real Madrid City. Following the training session, the French forward spoke to the club's official media: "I'm pleased to be back with the team. It's been some time and I've had time to do a pre-season. I'm feeling very good, comfortable. I'm looking forward to the game on Sunday".
"I've been doing a lot of fitness work. I've not touched the ball. I've trained for the first time today. I did a lot of running and strength training inside the facilities over the past few days. I also worked out at home. I was a bit late back from my holidays and I didn't have much time to do a good pre-season, which is why I've done it now and I feel very good".
"The team looks very good to me, perfect. I've seen the winning all their game, scoring goals and showing their character. We've got a great team, although it could be said that we've got two teams. There's no difference between those who start the game and those who come on. The team looks very good to me".
Demanding month of October
"We have to continue. We know in our heads that we have to win every game. Every match is important. Everyone wants to beat Real Madrid, but we're in good shape and ready to keep going".
