Varane: Best match I’ve played

Raphael Varane admitted that his performance for Real Madrid against Barcelona last night was probably the ‘best match’ he has played for the club.

The French centre-back made his Clasico debut in the first leg of this Copa del Rey semi-final and was a notable performer, also popping up with the equaliser in the final 10 minutes of play.

“I'm very happy with how I played. For me it was incredible and to score a goal is a dream,” enthused the teenager at full-time.

“It is a game I will always remember and I’m just 19. I still cannot believe it. It is the best match I've had at Real Madrid.

“It is not the best result but it leaves the tie open. My teammates congratulated me, I am happy for my performance and now I have to keep giving my best.”
