Benzema will be sidelined for three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury during France's international friendly against Aremnia on Thursday, Marca reports.

Benzema has six goals in six La Liga games this season and bagged a brace before coming down with the injury against Armenia. His absence will put more pressure on Cristiano Ronaldo to break through and score more consistently this season, with Gareth Bale a possibility to move up in the Madrid attack after the international break.
