“Real Madrid have confirmed that Sergio Ramos has picked a calf injury which could see him out of action for at least two weeks.”
“After the tests carried out on our player Sergio Ramos by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a grade I injury in his left soleus (lower calf muscle). Progress pending,” the club stated on its website.
The injury setback could see Ramos out for around two weeks, meaning he will not play any part in the game at Leganés on Monday.
Carvajal, Llorente and Courtois set to return
On the positive front, Zidane is expected to welcome back Dani Carvajal, Marcos Llorente and Thibaut Courtois to the fold for Monday’s game.
Meanwhile, as reported by AS this Friday, young Brazilian starlet Vinicius could make his return against Bilbao on Sunday week, 21 April, after having been absent through injury since the 4-1 defeat to Ajax on 5 March.
This season Ramos has once again been an indispensable starter at Madrid, as evident by his high level of participation. With 3,662 minutes played between all competitions, only Benzema (3,868) has played more minutes than the Madrid captain.
