More injury concerns for Zidane before El Clasico

Real Madrid handed one more injury blow ahead of El Clásico

May 3, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The second leg of their UEFA Champions League clash against Bayern wasn't all good news for Los Blancos.

Real Madrid may have their sights set on the UEFA Champions League final, but saving face against Barcelona after a disappointing 3-0 loss at the Bernabeu demands something else from Zidane's men.

Unfortunately for their cause, the team will most likely be without three key members of their team in their trip to Camp Nou, as Raphael Varane will join Isco and Dani Carvajal on the sidelines.

The French international struggled to finish the game against Bayern on Tuesday due to some problems in his right calf. Today, during Los Blancos' first training session after their UCL game, Varane worked on his own to see if he can be available for Sunday's clash.

As per Marca, coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to let the player rest, making Nacho and Jesus Vallejo the only options to fill in Varane's void.

Varane struggled with a right calf problem after taking a knock by Robert Lewandowski in the first half of Tuesday's tie.

In an injury-plagued season for Real Madrid, it, the player's fitness may be one of the biggest concerns for Zidane ahead of the crucial May 26 tie against Liverpool, which would make his absence from Sunday's clash even more reasonable.
