Real Madrid supporters would sacrifice Benzema to play Modric

Julen Lopetegui has a tough decision to make ahead of the UEFA Super Cup, as he wants to play Luka Modric yet he will have to bench one of his pre-season stars in order to make room for the Croatian midfielder.

He’ll have the final say, but the fans believe Karim Benzema should be the one to make way.

In a MARCA poll which collected over 130,000 votes, 32 percent said that the French striker should be the player to be left out in order to free up a space for Modric.

Marco Asensio was the next choice at 21 percent, followed by Isco at 20 percent, Casemiro at 17 percent and Toni Kroos at eight percent.

Of all the options listed, Gareth Bale was the one who supporters clearly do not want to see benched, with just three percent believing he should make way for his former Tottenham teammate.
