Varane suffers hamstring injury in Real Madrid clash

The France international lasted just 33 minutes against Shakhtar Donetsk and is set to join Sergio Ramos and Marcelo on the sidelines


Raphael Varane was forced off with a hamstring injury in Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday evening.

The France international lasted just 33 minutes before being replaced by Danilo.

Madrid are already without Sergio Ramos, who required a pain-killing injection on a shoulder injury prior to Saturday’s 4-0 defeat at the hands of Barcelona.

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, along with strikes from Luka Modric and Dani Carvajal, have given Madrid a 4-3 lead against Shakhtar.
