Varane doubt for Chelsea
Real Madrid defender and French International Raphael Varane was taken off in yesterday’s 2-0 win over Osasuna due to pain in his leg.
It was revealed after the game that the 27-year old had felt the pain in the same area which caused him fatigue in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea.
It is not yet confirmed whether or not this is enough to keep them out of the game and could purely be precautionary.

Nacho Fernandez came on in place of the former Lens defender to partner Eder Militao.
The Brazilian went on to score the first goal of the game in the 76th minute and four minutes later, Casemiro secured the points to take Real second.
Ramos to return
Should Varane not be available for Tuesday, Zinedine Zidane has been given a boost in the return of Sergio Ramos.
The club captain has been out with an injury for a number of weeks and missed the first leg of the semi-final.
However, the French coach confirmed that he is now back in full training and will be available for the game on Wednesday.
“[Ramos] is training with us and that means he’s able to play too,” Zidane said before the weekend match.
“We’ll see what we do when we name the squad, but Sergio is fit and ready to play.”
Real Madrid travel to West London having conceded an away goal from Christian Pulisic.
Karim Benzema scored the equaliser before half-time but the tie is very much in the balance and whoever wins the game in the 90 minutes will of course go through to the final.
