Having overcome sbo the misfortune of injuries to his midfield and strikers, Zinedine Zidane now faces worries concerning his back line.

With the decisive Champions League Round of 16 clash against Paris Saint-Germain in a fortnight's time, the Real Madrid head coach finds himself in a selection dilemma. If the game were to be played at this moment, the Frenchman would be without central defenders Sergio Ramos and Jesus Vallejo through injury, an unfit Raphael Varane after succumbing a knock at Mestalla, and no Dani Carvajal due to suspension. His captain Sergio Ramos relapsed from his soleus injury after being forced to play the full 90 minutes in the Copa Del Rey tie against Leganes, despite only setting out to play the opening 45. Due to mid-game complications, Ramos had to battle through and in doing so, he has seen a return to the muscular problems he picked up earlier in the season. For Varane, he is set to return on Saturday as Zidane prepares his men for the match against Levante. He is likely to partner sbo Nacho Fernandez who remains the only Real player not to suffer injury this term.Ramos has missed a total 10 games this campaign, Vallejo 11, Carvajal nine and Varane the most fortunate with five. Whether they can stay away from the treatment sbo table for the remainder of the season is yet to be seen.
