Karim Benzema is expected to lead the line for Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final clash with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

Karim Benzema will reportedly be fit to lead the line for Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final clash with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

The French striker suffered a knock in the 3-1 win over Real Betis at the weekend, and it had been feared that he would miss the trip to Germany.

However, according to reports in Spain, Benzema trained alone in the gym on Sunday before joining the rest of his teammates for a full session on Monday.

However, Luka Modric and Marcelo are both expected to miss out the first-leg encounter with injuries.
