Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid: Varane forced off with head injury

Raphael Varane had to be taken off after a clash of heads with Eibar's Kike García in the first half of Real Madrid's LaLiga victory at Ipurua.

Raphael Varane is currently under observation by Real Madrid's medical staff after being forced off with a head injury in Saturday's LaLiga win at Eibar.

Replaced by Nacho after clashing with Eibar's Kike

The Frenchman had to be substituted shortly before the half-hour mark at Ipurua after suffering a clash of heads with Eibar striker Kike García minutes earlier.

After receiving treatment in the immediate aftermath of the incident, both Kike and, initially, Varane remained on the field.

However, with the defender complaining of dizziness and showing significant swelling above his right eye, he asked to be brought off and was replaced by Nacho Fernández.

Real are expected to provide further details on the player's condition in the coming hours.

Ronaldo was Real Madrid's match-winner at Eibar.
