Sergio Ramos is out of Real Madrid’s Champions League reunion with Liverpool

Sergio Ramos is out of Real Madrid’s Champions League reunion with Liverpool

Captain Out

The potential reunion of Sergio Ramos and Mo Salah in the Champions League has been a leading story in the buildup to Real Madrid and Liverpool’s upcoming Quarter-Final clash.

The pair clashed during the 2018 Final, which Madrid won 3-1, but news has broken that Ramos picked up a calf injury playing for Spain last night against Kosovo. He is therefore likely to be out of action for a month, meaning the stopper will miss both legs of the tie, as well as the latest edition of El Clasico on April 10th.

Ramos also took to Instagram to confirm his injury:

A post shared by Sergio Ramos (@sergioramos)

The translation reads;

“I’ve actually had a pretty rough couple of weeks. An intervention is always a sports and emotional break. Luckily, for a few days now I’ve been finding better, but in football as in life, bad luck also plays a role.”

“Yesterday, after the game, I stayed training on the pitch and noticed a puncture on the left twin. Got tested today and it’s confirmed I have a muscle injury.”

“If there’s something that hurts me is not being able to help the team in these games of maximum demand in which we play the season and also not being able to return on the pitch the love and energy you transmit to me. “

“I can’t so anything but speak frankly, work hard and cheer for the team with the soul.” 

Absence Felt

Zinedine Zidane

Zinedine Zidane will miss Ramos dearly, if the Spaniard’s previous absences are anything to go by.

Despite four Champions League titles, Madrid’s record when Ramos isn’t playing is poor. They have lost 7 of their last 10 games in the competition without the stopper.

With his future at the club in doubt, if Real Madrid fail to overcome Liverpool, we may already have seen Ramos’ last European game in the famous white of Los Blancos.
