Real Madrid has published by surprise the medical part of Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale that they will miss the Spanish Super Cup, which will be played from next Wednesday in Saudi Arabia. It is still unknown if they will travel or not to make a group, but in no case will they be available to play the games. French striker suffers a lesion in the semimembranous muscle due to bruising in his left leg produced in the training prior to the trip to Saudi Arabia. As usual, the club has not published the extent of its problems and accompanies the medical part with a “pending evolution.” However, the fact that his physical condition has been published shows that will not be against Valencia or in the hypothetical final.For its part, Gareth Bale does not suffer any physical problems, but rather a disease that also prevents him from dressing short for the Super Cup. The Welshman has a upper respiratory tract infectionr and also pending evolution. In any case, the fact that his medical part has been published surprises, since in his day he refused to be informed about his state of health.
