Pepe a doubt for Madrid

Real Madrid defender Pepe has sat out this morning’s training session with a sore calf and is a doubt for tomorrow’s clash against Real Betis.

The Portugal international was ruled out of today’s training with the injury, and reports in the Spanish Press claim that he could sit out Sunday’s game at Santiago Bernabeu.

It means Carlo Ancelotti has something of an injury crisis ahead of his first game in charge.

Sergio Ramos is the only fit senior centre-back, meaning the Italian could give a start to youngster Nacho.
