With the attackers of Los Blancos failing to show up, it was central defender Raphael Varane who turned up to get his side levelled seven minutes after going behind.

An injury to Alvaro Odriozola saw manager Zinedine Zidane introduced Marcelo into the game while Mariano Diaz was also brought on at the expense of Vinicius Jr.

With six minutes to go until the end of the game, Varane turned the hero once again for his side, netting his second in the 2020/21 Spanish league campaign.
