Raphaël Varane out zidane's selection against Alaves

Is the mistake against Paris Saint-Germain one of the reasons not to rely on it?

The Spanish newspaper "Marca" confirmed the absence of Rafael Varane, the player of Real Madrid, for his team's match against Deportivo Alavés, scheduled for Saturday evening in the competition of the fifteenth round of La Liga.

Real Madrid had drawn with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League with two goals each despite Real Madrid's lead in this match, but Thomas Tuchel's squad managed to return in two minutes via substitute Sarabia and by Kylian Mbappé.

PSG's first goal came after a foul from Varane, who was unable to deflect a weak ground cross to reach Mbappé and then reduce the gap to 2-1.

But according to Marca, Varane's absence from the Alavés match will not be a punishment for the mistake made by the French international, but rather as the coach of The Royal sought Zinedine Zidane to rest the star of his defense in the next stage.

Varane has played in Real Madrid's last six games in full, four in La Liga and two Champions League matches, forcing Zizou to rely on one of the other elements of the defense against Alavés to give the 26-year-old a break.

At the same time, Real Madrid will enter the match Alavés, which is missing from its star Eden Hazard, whose absence was confirmed for ten days after the injury that affected him in the PSG match and made him come out and replace Gareth Bale.

Real Madrid suffers other important injuries, such as James Rodríguez, who injured his cruciate ligament with Colombia in the last international break, as well as Marco Asensio and Lucas Vázquez.

It should also be noted that the capital team shares the lead in La Liga equally with Barcelona with 28 points each.
