Benzema (hip) will be available for selection Saturday versus Osasuna, according to Marca.

Benzema (hip) is a major doubt for Saturday's La Liga home debut against Celta, according to Marca.

Benzema didn't take part in Friday's training session still recovering from his hip issues and is on his way to miss another La Liga fixtures. He'll have a better chance to return after the international break with another fortnight of rest. Alvaro Morata will probably get another start upfront in his absence.
