Although he was not present at the sextape trial last month, Karim Benzema, along with the four other defendants, will be determined on his fate on Wednesday.

In fact, as L’Équipe indicates, the deliberation of the Versailles Criminal Court will be delivered at 9:30 am. The prosecutor requested a ten-month suspended prison sentence and a €75,000 fine for the French international.

Real Madrid will play on the field of Sheriff Tiraspol this Wednesday in the Champions League (9 p.m.), Benzema will once again not be present in court. Whatever the verdict, it should not affect his future in the France team.

In any case, this is what Noël Le Graët suggested a few days ago in an interview with Le Parisien: "the coach will always remain responsible for his selection, and Benzema will not be excluded in relation to a possible judicial sanction. Even if he receives a suspended prison sentence, he still has the option of appealing a conviction. So called up or not in the coming months, will not be linked to this verdict."
