Zidane hopeful defensive duo Varane and Ramos will be fit to face Chelsea

The Blancos could be shorthanded in defence for Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane is hopeful that Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos will both be fit for Wednesday's clash with Chelsea in the Champions League. 

Ramos has returned to full fitness after suffering a calf injury but has not played a game for Madrid since mid-March.

Varane, meanwhile, suffered a minor injury and had to be withdrawn at half-time of Saturday's 2-0 win over Osasuna.
