In six of these seven matches, Benzema and the team have scored at least twice against their opponents in front of their home crowd. Madrid is without Ferland Mendy due to injury. In his place, Nacho Fernandez, David Alaba or Eduardo Camaving, who has been doing a really good job at this position in the past few games, could step in as left backs.
