Sergio Ramos questionable for Saturday's clash against Celta

The defender was able to feature last Wednesday but his shoulder could keep him out of the Liga game.

How bad would it be for Real Madrid to start Nacho in Balaídos? Sergio Ramos managed to play at the Parc des Princes but his shoulder might keep him out of the clash against Celta de Vigo tomorrow, so Varane and Nacho himself would be the only available defenders in Real's roster considering that Pepe is also injured.

This could be devastating, as Nacho has proved he's not ready to start against quality opposition. The Spanish struggled against Málaga's Amrabat so one can only imagine what Nolito, Orellana or Aspas could do against him. Varane has become Real's starting defender and at least Benítez would be able to count on one of the leaders of his defensive line, but Ramos' absence could be very problematic against a team of Celta's caliber.

The Galician team have been in great form since the season started and will be very hard to beat at Balaídos.
