Ramos is back to full fitness after suffering a calf injury, but has not played a game since mid-March.

Varane, meanwhile, suffered a minor knock and was withdrawn at half-time of Saturday’s 2-0 win over Osasuna.

“I hope Varane has a small thing, he thinks it is a small thing and I hope so,” Zidane told Movistar after the game.

“I hope Ramos is back. If he’s good, he’ll be with us.”

With Ramos and Varane sidelined several times this season, Eder Militao has stepped up to become a vital part of the team’s defence.
