Via an Instagram story, Karim Benzema reacted to the dates of his trial in the Mathieu Valbuena sextape case.
“Here, finally, vamonos. May the masquerade be extinguished forever.” It is with a light heart and with a touch of relief that Karim Benzema has welcomed the announcement of the date of his appearance in court, from October 20 to 22.

Via an Instagram sorty, the prolific Real Madrid goalscorer seems in a hurry to get it over with. By law, the Real Madrid player could face a prison sentence of up to five years – in addition to a fine of € 60,000 – if found guilty.
Jail ? Fine? What does Benzema really risk in court?
However, the native of Bron is not worried in the least, judging by his last post.
Still prosecuted for “complicity in attempted blackmail” in the context of the sextape affair with Mathieu Valbuena, the plaintiff, “KB9”, will go before the court of Versailles.
Four other men are also being prosecuted in the same case.
As a reminder, this dark affair notably deprived Benzema of Euro 2016, lost in the final by the Blues against Portugal, before a success two years later in the World Cup, still without the Madrilenian. But faced with the current poverty of the French game, several voices are campaigning for its return …
But Deschamps once made a decision and will no doubt stick to it. To be sure, it was enough to see his reaction last Sunday in Kazakhstan, bordering on giggles when a journalist dared to ask a question about Benzema, who remains to this day stuck at 27 goals in 81 caps.
