Real Madrid suffer double injury blow with Sergio Ramos, Varane

Real Madrid are facing a defensive crisis after both first-choice centre backs Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane went off with suspected injuries playing for their countries on Tuesday.

Ramos was substituted in the 43rd minute of Spain’s 6-0 win over Germany in Seville in the UEFA Nations League.

A brief statement from the Spanish football federation said that the defender was suffering from “severe discomfort in his right hamstring.”

Ramos was featuring in his 178th international.

Meanwhile, Varane was replaced at halftime of France’s 4-2 victory over Sweden in Paris, also seemingly with a hamstring issue.

“I had to take Raphael off because he had a little problem,” Les Bleus coach Didier Deschamps said.
