Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos will miss his side’s clash with Espanyol on Saturday, boss Zinedine Zidane has confirmed.
The defender picked up a slight knock in Wednesday’s Champions League victory over Napoli to rule him out of the encounter, while Gareth Bale has been confirmed as being in the squad.
" Sergio Ramos? It is just a bang, not an injury. On Monday he will be with us, with no problems," explained Zidane at his pre-match press conference.
" Gareth Bale will be on the bench tomorrow, the idea is that we will bring him on to get a few minutes and ease him back into fitness."
" Alvaro Morata? He has had few minutes, but he has had minutes. Less than Karim ( Benzema), for sure, but tomorrow he will start the game. And others too."
"Does Morata want to leave? I hope not, we love him here and he feels at home."
