Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol feels for Raphael Varane after his injury against Espanyol.

The French youngster is now set to miss the Copa del Rey final.

"It is unfortunate for that to have happened to a teammate, whether it was Raphael or another. I could be me or one of my teammates who replaces him, so we must train well and be ready for if the coach decides that we are playing," said Albiol.
