Varane an injury doubt for Clasico

Real Madrid will be without defender Raphael Varane for the match against Deportivo this evening.

The French centre-back has been a revelation this season for Los Blancos, coming in for widespread praise after his performance against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.

But Jose Mourinho will miss the 19-year-old for the game with the Turcos after a 'small muscle discomfort', the club's official website confirmed.

It is, as yet, unclear how serious the injury is, but the youngster could be considered a doubt for vital matches against the Blaugrana and Manchester United within the next few weeks.
