Despite what has been labelled a miserable season for the Wales global, mainly due to yet another injury-ridden year minimising his opportunities for the defending Spanish and European champions, the attacker has still managed to grab 13 goals and four assists from 16 starts.

Midfielder Luka Modric has also been omitted from Zinedine Zidane's 19-man group for the trip to La Rosaleda.

Their only hope of winning a title this season is now in the Champions League where they will face German side Bayern Munich in the semi final.

Zidane insisted Benzema - who has just nine goals in all competitions - would continue working hard. "They do not make a sad impression on me".

The 25-year-old is also aiming to topple the Welshman and score another eight before the end of the campaign - to break the record for most goals in a season (47) that Rush achieved in 1983-84. "He's a fantastic player and we want him to be with us for many years".

Vidal is set to undergo surgery on a knee problem and looks certain to miss the first leg.

Former Liverpool FC striker Bellamy claimed that Real Madrid are the only team capable of stopping Klopp's juggernaut.

"There are very good players at this club, and I must always value that too".
