Ramos is yet to make his competitive debut for his new club through injury, and won’t train with the rest of his team-mates for at least another week according to El Partidazo de Cope.
As noted by Managing Madrid’s Matt Wiltse, the last time Ramos was consistently available and played three consecutive matches was back in December of 2020.
Since them, he’s managed to play two consecutive games in January, two in March, 49 minutes with Spain at the end of March and then one game in May, a Champions League semi-final with Chelsea where he was clearly unfit.
The last time Sergio Ramos was consistently available (3+ matches) and healthy was December 2020.
Since then it was 2 games in January, 2 games in March, the infamous 49 mins with Spain at the end of March, and 1 game in May (Chelsea SF) where he was still clearly injured. https://t.co/WnRnOSeP6h

Ramos will be itching to get back on the pitch and prove he still has what it takes to compete with the elite of the elite, but his 35-year-old body appears to be letting him down.
In his absence, Madrid have coped well, it must be said. Eder Militao and David Alaba have established a competent centre-back partnership so far this season.
