Varane to keep place in starting XI

Real Madrid youngster Raphael Varane is expected to keep his place in the starting XI as Los Blancos face Granada this evening.

The French defender was widely praised for his performance against Barcelon on Wednesday, with the player himself describing is as 'his best yet'.

And AS believe that Jose Mourinho will opt for the 19-year-old in the centre of defence despite Sergio Ramos being available again after he completed his five-game ban.

The capital club travel to Los Carmenes tonight, looking for the three points that will take them to within one point of Atletico Madrid in second place.
