Varane back for Juve

Raphael Varane has made Real Madrid’s squad for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Juventus after concerns over his knee.

The youngster returned from international duty with France last week struggling with discomfort and inflammation in the same knee he had only just returned to playing on after surgery in May.

As a precaution, the centre-back missed training through last week and sat out the weekend win over Malaga.

However, on from having since returned to training, Varane has made the 22-man squad named by Carlo Ancelotti today to face the visit of Juve this midweek.

Real Madrid squad to face Juventus: Casillas, Diego López, Jesús, Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrão, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa, Nacho, Khedira, Bale, Casemiro, Modric, Di María, Isco, Illarra, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Jesé, Morata
