Another upset for Zidane in the form of injury: Varane suffers an injury “in the right abductor muscles”, According to the statement issued by Real Madrid, a problem for which he requested the change in the Real Madrid-Osasuna break last Saturday and that he will have a minimum of 10 days. Lucky for Zidane that Sergio Ramos has just returned and that he has Nacho and Militao at a high level in recent weeks, but even so it is a sensitive loss, of one of its two head offices.
The Frenchman had undergone an ultrasound on Sunday to assess the extent of the problem, but that test revealed practically nothing; An MRI was necessary, which he underwent this Monday morning and which revealed the real problem: a small muscle tear of little importance, but enough so that Varane cannot be in the most important duel of the season, that of this Wednesday in London.
The Frenchman will obviously miss the match against Chelsea on Wednesday, back from the Champions League semi-finals at Stamford Bridge (9:00 p.m., Movistar Champions League). Nor will he be next Sunday in Madrid-Seville, in a fundamental duel for Real Madrid's aspirations in LaLiga. And it is very difficult to get to the next league match, on Thursday the 13th in Los Cármenes against Granada, who gave the bell a few days ago by winning Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
Varane remains in the bedroom for the last two days of the League, against Athletic Club in Bilbao and against Villarreal in Valdebebas, and for a hypothetical Champions League final against City or PSG in Istanbul, on May 29. That, of course, if Madrid turn around the tie against Chelsea, which for the moment is facing the English after 1-1 in the first leg.
