Sergio Ramos could be out of El Clasico at Santiago Bernabeu due to an injury from a collision with Casemiro.
Real Madrid will face Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu on the weekend. The side will aim to break the deadlock against Barca this season.
Real are winless in their first three games against Barca, losing twice.
Earlier this week, Barcelona secured a 3-0 win over Real Madrid in the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, thus proceeding into the final of the Copa del Rey. Luis Suarez scored a brace in a memorable win for Barca.
Real Madrid suffered a crushing 5-1 defeat to the Catalan side earlier this season in the league and the Los Blancos will be desperate to secure three points in the league. Barca are currently nine points ahead of their arch-rivals.

“You‘re playing for the badge of the biggest club in the world. I believe that you have to know how to lead under the pressure and expectations of every day, maintaining your own values and behaviour both on and off the pitch. Above all, you never give up.”

However, Real Madrid may receive a huge setback to their chances of securing a win in the game. The side’s captain, Sergio Ramos, is reportedly feared out of the game due to an injury.
In their mid-week fixture against the same opponents, Sergio Ramos seemed to suffer an injury due to collision with fellow teammate Casemiro. Marca has now reported that the injury sustained from the incident has now aggravated.

According to Marca, Ramos “will be examined by the medical staff on the day of the game,” but is likely to sit out for the match.
Nacho Fernandez is out of the game due to suspension and Raphael Varane is also a doubt for the game due to an injury sustained during the game. The French defender returned to training ahead of the league clash, but his knee was heavily strapped.

Might be safer if he never gets banned, you know. At least we can all keep an eye on the massive shithouse when he’s playing. Christ knows what he gets up to when he’s not on the pitch.

Sergio Ramos is already suspended for the upcoming two Champions League clashes due to his admission about deliberately going for a yellow card. If Real Madrid wins their second leg against Ajax, Ramos will miss the first leg of the quarterfinal of the competition.
Barcelona have won four of their last five league games at Santiago Bernabeu, with a cumulative score of 13-4.
