Real Madrid's Karim Benzema to miss Champions League tie vs. Roma

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Mark Donaldson react to the reports of Real Madrid's Karim Benzema being out for a month.

MADRID -- Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is expected to be sidelined for up to a month because of a right leg muscle injury.

Benzema will miss upcoming La Liga games and next week's return match against Roma in the Champions League -- Madrid won the first leg 2-0 in Rome.

The France international should be fit again in time for the league match against Barcelona at the Camp Nou on April 2.

Madrid did not say exactly how long the player is expected to be sidelined, noting that "his recovery will continue to be assessed."

Benzema had missed the game against Malaga a week ago because of a back problem. He was substituted at half-time in Madrid's 1-0 home loss to Atletico Madrid because of the muscle injury.
