It appeared as if Sergio Ramos was going to be sidelined for Real Madrid's away match against Valencia (Sunday, 17:00 CET). After all, he has not been training with the squad over the last few days. But Marca report today on their front page that the defender will rush his recovery and risk a set back to help Los Blancos in Mestalla.
That is a risky move, as Raphaël Varane is a reliable backup who could perfectly replace Ramos in this match. It's also true that this trip to Valencia is very important for Real Madrid, so Ramos -- the one player who always steps his game up during big matches -- shouldn't be blamed for wanting to feature either.
In the end, it will all come down to Ancelotti's decision.
