Real Madrid blow: Sergio Ramos & Raphael Varane pick up knocks on international duty

Spain hammer Germany

The final round of Nations League group action kicked off on Tuesday evening.

The main tie of the night was, of course, Spain facing off with Germany.

It would be the latter who headed into the tie sat top of Group 4, meaning Spain had to win to progress to the next round.

And when all was said and done, win is exactly what Luis Enrique’s side did.

Alvaro Morata began the scoring 17 minutes in before a Ferran Torres hat-trick and goals from both Rodri and Mikel Oyarzabal saw Spain come away with a staggering 6-0 victory.

France would also put four past Sweden on Tuesday, though said tie had little significance after Les Bleus had already qualified last week after seeing off Portugal.

Ramos & Varane injured

Both wins, however, look to have come at something of a price for one club in particular.

Said club is Real Madrid, who could now well be without their main centre-back duo for their return to action this weekend.

First up, Sergio Ramos was subbed off 43 minutes into Spain’s win over Germany.

Luis Enrique then confirmed post-match that Ramos had suffered a minor injury:

“The injuries are minor and I hope they are out for a short time. It is what I feel the most, because I have been a club coach and I put myself in their place.”

Raphael Varane was then hooked at half-time vs France, with Didier Deschamps stating that he and Lucas Hernandez came off because they had little problems:

“[Lucas] Hernandez and Varane came off because they had little problems.”
