MADRID - Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is set to miss up to a month with a leg injury, according to Spanish newspaper AS. The 25-year old left the field after 45 minutes in the club’s 5-1 defeat to Barcelona on Sunday. “He’s been diagnosed with a groin injury to his right leg,” Real said in a statement without noting how long the French international would be out for. AS said he would be sidelined for up to a month, meaning he could miss France’s games in November against the Netherlands and possible Uruguay. He will also miss Real’s fixtures against Melilla in the Spanish Cup on Wednesday, Saturday’s league match against Valladolid, and the midweek trip to Victoria Plzen in the Champions League. He will also be out for the following weekend league match against Vigo.–AFP
