Benzema is the star watch in Saudi

Karim Benzema will be hoping to make his mark on the Supercopa de Espana in Saudi Arabia, with Real Madrid set to face Barcelona on Wednesday night.

The French striker is popular among football fans in the area given his Islamic faith and the fact that he often attends Mecca, the holiest city in Islam and site of pilgrimage.

Real Madrid fans all over the world will be hoping that Benzema is on form once again to fire Los Blancos to the final, where they will face the winner of the other semi-final, with Atletico Madrid and Athletic Club facing off on Thursday.
