MADRID (AP) Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema had to be substituted at halftime of Sunday’s Spanish league match at Real Betis after hurting his right hand.
Madrid coach Santiago Solari said Benzema had fractured his hand.
“He was in a lot of pain,” Solari said.
Benzema needed to be attended by team doctors when he fell after a brush with a Betis defender in first-half stoppage time.
He was replaced by reserve-team player Cristo Gonzalez during the break.
Benzema leads Madrid in scoring with 12 goals in all competitions this season.
