Real Madrid – La Liga During match against Sweden
Pavard and Varane.
France national team coach Didier Deschamps has confirmed that Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane was brought off at half time of Les Bleus’ match against Sweden on Tuesday night due to a potential injury. This news comes on the same night that Varane’s centre-back partner at club level, Sergio Ramos, also picked up a knock whilst playing for Spain against Germany. He was brought off immediately, with the 34-year-old holding the back of his right thigh.
“[Lucas] Hernandez and Varane came off because they had little problems,” Deschamps said. Real Madrid will understandably be concerned about this news regarding Varane and Ramos, particularly ahead of a week in which they face away trips to Villarreal and Inter. The hope is that Varane’s injury is not severe and he will therefore be at Zinedine Zidane’s disposal for Saturday’s match against Villarreal.
