Real Madrid Boss Zidane Will Not Risk Players For Atalanta Match

 

Zinedine Zidane says he is not willing to risk players when Real Madrid visit Atalanta in the Champions League last 16 amid a growing injury list.

Top-scorer Karim Benzema was one of nine Real players to miss Saturday’s 1-0 win at Real Valladolid with injury and has not travelled to Italy.

The 13-time European champions have only 11 fit senior players for the first leg in Bergamo on Wednesday.

“We never take risks,” said Zidane about French forward Benzema.

“Maybe we would if it was the Champions League final or the last game of the league season with the title on the line, but there’s a long way to go.”

Eden Hazard, Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal and Marcelo are also among those who will miss the first knockout game.
