Casemiro, Marcelo, Luka Modric… And now Sergio Ramos. The full back got injured on Sunday in the game played by Spain in Albania. The Real Madrid player call the doctors in the last minutes of the clash after jumping trying to score a goal. He fell down incorrectly and very quick he realized he had some injury. He couldn’t continue the game and was helped by the doctors to get out of the pitch.
After some medical test, Sergio Ramos was lucky and he only has a sprain in his left knee grade II, so he will be out of the pitch around six weeks. However, this is a knee injury, so the Spanish national team doctors wanted to be cautious: “It looks like an injury in the lateral intern ligament, we have to be cautious. We have already spoke with Real Madrid doctors. It’s not pleasant because the ligament is affected and he has to be substituted during the game. We hope it’s just a sprain level I or II in the ligament, but we have always to be cautious with the knee and wait more more test until we can give a definitive diagnosis”, doctor Celada said to the journalists.
Sergio Ramos was also worried for a more serious injury, so he could have been out around 3-6 months. However, it looks like the Andalusian player could be back to the pitches even before Christmas. Luckily for Real Madrid, Pepe and Varane have shown they could be the perfect couple for the full backs, so they will be playing the next few games. Zizou has also Nacho, who played some minutes with Spain in Italy.
Real Madrid sickroom is full. Apart from Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric got also injured and he’ll miss the next few games, a major problem for Zidane. In the midfield, the French coach doesn’t have available Casemiro, so Toni Kroos is the only available player there. Besides, Marcelo was out some weeks too, but he should be back to face Betis next Saturday.
