Real Madrid concern on Sergio Ramos fitness; set to miss Alaves trip

Real Madrid news is focused on the upcoming league clash at Alaves but captain Sergio Ramos is set to miss out the trip due to an injury.

The talismanic defender did not train with his teammates on Friday and will not be involved in the trip, along with the absences of midfield duo Martin Odegaard and Fede Valverde.

Ramos has been carrying a knee injury that made him a major doubt for the recent clash against Athletic Club Bilbao – where he left the stadium wrapped in a bandage and limping – before sitting out this week’s Copa del Rey clash at Alcoyano.
