Sergio Ramos set to miss both Liverpool games and El Classico as Real Madrid announce that he suffered a calf muscle injury during international duty
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is doubtful for the two legs of the Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool after he was diagnosed with a calf muscular injury.
Real will play the Premier League champions on Tuesday, April 6th and Wednesday, April 14th, with El classic coming in between the two legs against Barcelona in La Liga.
"If there is something that hurts me, it is not being able to help the team in these highly demanding matches," said the Spain international defender on Instagram.
Real Madrid announced the injury on their official website on Thursday as tests were carried out on Ramos after he noticed the injury while training with Spain following their 3-1 win over Kosovo.
The La Liga champions will host Liverpool in the first leg.
The match was supposed to reignite the Ramos vs Salah battle we witnessed during the 2018 final in Kiev which Salah suffered a shoulder injury.
Real Madrid won the final 3-1, but Mohammed Salah claimed he bears no grudges against Ramos.
Speaking to Spanish newspaper Marca, Salah said: "Let's say I have a special desire to win the game and to qualify for the semi-final, whatever happens now is not going to change the result of Kiev. It's over."
