Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema reportedly escaped unharmed from a minor car accident on his way home from his team's 1-0 defeat to Barcelona on Sunday evening.
According to Spanish sports daily Marca, the Frenchman's vehicle was seriously damaged when he hit a barrier while travelling in the Madrid suburbs, but the player was not hurt.
The 21-year-old former Lyon striker was introduced with half an hour remaining at the Nou Camp last night as Manuel Pellegrini's side surrendered top spot in La Liga.
Swedish international striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who came on as a second half substitute, scored the only goal in “El Clasico”.
