Varane to miss El Clásico due to a calf injury. No other worries.

Kroos had a scare in training thanks to an incident with Jesé but after being treated by the physios rejoined the session. Ramos trained normally.

Zidane, junto a Varane.

Real Madrid held their last training session before El Clásico tomorrow evening (live stream can be followed on this site, KO 20:30). Someone who was missing from Zidane's group was Varane. The French centerback was suffering with some pain in his left calf muscle and tests were being carried out on Thursday to determine the extent of the injury. The clear expectation is that he will be ruled out the match against Barça. The injury had been picked up while he was respresenting France during the international friendlies.

In other fitness news, Toni Kroos gave the manager a scare when he was forced out of training after a collision with teammate Jesé. However, he was treated at the side of the pitch by the physios and returned with no significant side-effects. Zidane was also pleased to have Sergio Ramos training without any issues after getting over his back problems suffered when away with Spain.

Madrid travel to Barcelona tomorrow and will stay at the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos.
