Injury rules Varane out of Chelsea return

Raphael Varane is set to miss Real Madrid’s crunch Champions League second leg against Chelsea on Wednesday after the club confirmed he has sustained an adductor injury.

Varane was taken off at halftime of Madrid’s 2-0 win over Osasuna in LaLiga on Saturday.

Real Madrid drew 1-1 with Chelsea in last week’s first leg at Valdebebas.

“After the tests carried out today on our player Raphael Varane by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he was diagnosed with an injury to the right adductor muscle,” Real Madrid said in a statement on Monday.
