Real Madrid’s captain Ramos returns for El Clasico after injury
Real Madrid’s captain Sergio Ramos has recovered from injury and his fit to play in the first El Clasico of the
season against Barcelona this weekend.
Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, on Friday, confirmed that Sergio Ramos will be available to face Barcelona after
recovering from the knee injury that kept him out of the loss to Shakhtar on Wednesday.
Sergio is our captain, our leader,” said Zidane. “He’s recovered, he’s going to be with us. It’s about being one
hundred percent though and I think that Sergio is already there.”
Zidane’s injury problems are mounting with Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard and Martin Odegaard already ruled out
of the fixture, while Mariano Diaz and Alvaro Odriozola are also unavailable for Los Blancos.
The 34-year-old’s absence meant Eder Militao partnered Raphael Varane in the heart of Madrid’s defense against
Shakhtar on Wednesday, with Madrid conceding three goals in the opening half.
