With less than two days of the semi-final return of the Champions League against Chelsea, Real Madrid has formalized the withdrawal of Raphaël Varane.
Huge blow for Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid will play Wednesday evening (9 p.m.) their return leg of the Champions League semi-finals at Stamford Brigde without Raphaël Varane. In a medical statement, the Merengue have indeed confirmed that the world champion had passed examinations which revealed a problem with the adductors and that he will not be able to hold his place against Chelsea.
Real Madrid does not say more about the precise duration of the absence of its French defender, but his presence next Sunday against Sevilla FC is also compromised. Against Chelsea, the Brazilian Éder Militão, holder this weekend against Osasuna (2-0), should take his place in the eleven.
