Karim Benzema was recently absent due to a positive coronavirus test, but the France international has now returned to training and had been expected available for this weekend's contest; the forward, though, has ultimately been left out of the squad.
Eden Hazard's fitness has allegedly made a positive impression on the club's coaching staff this summer, but the Belgian will also not be involved in this match, opening the door for Mariano Diaz to start at centre-forward.
