The players' names were not on the team's list that arrived at Rabat-Salé Airport late Monday evening, according to a statement on the club's official website.

Brazilian defender Eder Militao, French full-back Ferland Mendy and wingers Eden Hazard and Lucas Vazquez were also absent due to injury.

Benzema was injured in the thigh during the victory over Valencia in the league, last Thursday, before leaving in the 60th minute, while Militao left in the same match after a collision with Samuel Leno in the 36th minute.

On Sunday, Courtois was injured in his thigh during the warm-up period before the match against Real Mallorca, in which the Royals lost 0-1, and Ukrainian Andriy Lunin replaced him.

The Royal Club, the record holders of four times, will meet Al-Ahly of Egypt in the semi-finals next Wednesday on the grounds of the Prince Moulay Abdallah Sports Complex in Rabat.
