Ramos’ issue just a knock, no knee injury for Real Madrid’s captain

The Spanish defender could even feature next Wednesday against Mallorca, although it’s likely that coach Zidane gives him some rest.

Good news for Real Madrid, as team captain Sergio Ramos doesn’t suffer a serious knee injury after being forced to leave Sunday’s match against Real Sociedad after colliding with Isak.

Ramos was in obvious pain and some feared that he could need to spend some time off the field to recover from that injury, although coach Zinedine Zidane said during his post-match press conference that it appeared to be “just a knock.”

Zidane was right and Ramos should be available when Mallorca visit Real Madrid next Wednesday, although the French coach will likely give the defender some rest in order to keep him fresh for the tougher games ahead.

While Mallorca beat Madrid on their first meeting early this season, they should be a manageable opponent for Los Blancos at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano and Ramos should not be needed, something which would give the defender more time to get ready for next Sunday’s away match against Espanyol.
