Chelsea vs Real Madrid, Champions League: Zinedine Zidane loses a key player

Just a handful of days ago, in the framework of the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, Real Madrid appeared in Alfredo Di Stéfano against Chelsea, seeking to take an important step towards the decisive series. However, the Merengue failed to shine and had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

As a result, the series was completely open and even the English, currently led by Thomas Tuchel, are outlined in a better way considering the goal scored as a visitor. But of course, Real Madrid is Real Madrid and the Champions League is their favorite tournament, so we must not give it up for dead.

Anyway, in the last hours and after the game against Osasuna last weekend, Real Madrid suffered new bad news. It is that Raphael Varane, prominent and important central defender of Casa Blanca, suffered an injury and joined the infirmary of Zinedine Zidane's team directly and nonstop.

According to the official information indicated by Real Madrid, Varane has an injury to the right abductor muscles. In this way, the world champion with France in Russia 2018 will be absent around 10 days, so he will not be able to be present in the commitment against Seville for the domestic contest.

It should be remembered that Varane, who recently turned 28, was replaced at halftime in the match against Osasuna. At that time, the defender's annoyance did not appear to be serious, but hours later the degree of it was confirmed, and, by a transitory nature, his absence in London.

Unfortunately for the top champions of the aforementioned continental tournament, Varane's loss will not be the only one facing the match against Chelsea. It is that Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vázquez are also discarded. And, at the same time, it is practically a fact that Federico Valverde will not be in conditions either.
