Varane, Coentrao in contention

Raphael Varane and Fabio Coentrao are seen as likely to come back into the Real Madrid starting line-up to face Galatasaray this week.

Varane was not named in the matchday squad for the weekend draw at Real Zaragoza, whilst Coentrao was left in the stands, after both suffering with respective muscular injuries.

However, both defenders trained ‘at full pace’ on Sunday and are both seen as in contention to make the starting line-up for Wednesday evening’s home leg quarter-final against Galatasaray.

The duo are seen as Jose Mourinho’s preferred options in defence for the Champions League clash, with it also speculated that the Portuguese will run with the same starting XI that began the Last 16 second leg win at Old Trafford.
