Real Madrid

won 2-0 against

Osasuna

on Saturday. The Blancos were dominant throughout the match and managed to win the game with two late goals from

Eder Militao

and

Casemiro

.

Raphael Varane

was substituted at the beginning of the second half due to a leg injury and he was replaced by

Nacho Fernandez

. However,

Zinedine Zidane

says the problem doesn’t seem to be serious.

"I hope Varane has a small thing, he thinks it is a small thing and I hope so,"

Zidane told

Movistar

after the game.

Real Madrid are hoping that Varane would be fit for their crucial Champions League clash against

Chelsea

on Wednesday.

Sergio Ramos

has also recovered from his injury, but he has not featured in a match since mid-March.

"I hope Ramos is back," he added. "If he's good, he'll be with us."

According to

Marca

, Varane will undergo tests on Sunday to indicate the extent of his injury. The club is expected to give an update within the next 24 hours. After their match against Chelsea, Zidane’s side will play against

in their next La Liga match on May 9.
