Real Madrid 1-1 Barcelona: Raphael Varane Man of the Match in Epic Clasico Debut

Michael CernaCorrespondent IJanuary 29, 2013

Raphael Varane is now officially a star after being Man of the Match in a Clasico.

Behind only Lionel Messi, the young Frenchman is now the second-youngest foreigner to ever score in a Clasico.

Varane looked as poised and strong as Carles Puyol and will surely have some Madridistas forgetting about Pepe for at least a short while.
