Real Madrid Currently two points behind Barcelona
The back end of the 2018/19 season was lost by Sergio Ramos, but Real Madrid were already out of contention in every competition.
Injury ruled him out of action from April 3 and he didn’t return to the pitch until June 7 with Spain, when he reappeared to become the player with the most wins for La Roja.
Now Ramos is facing a season finale with everything on the line.
There are 11 games left for him to win LaLiga Santander, a competition in which Los Blancos had just slipped up by losing at Real Betis before the break.
In an impressive career, Ramos has won four LaLiga Santander titles and four Champions Leagues as well.
Four titles in 15 years at Real Madrid isn’t enough to challenge other club legends, though, and he’ll be desperate to add a fifth to those won in 2007, 2008, 2012 and 2017.
He’s now a pillar of the side, and Zinedine Zidane will need him at his best to drive the team forward for the run in.
Ramos‘ head has to be focused on the title, and while the environment will be different with no fans in attendance, he has to stay concentrated on the job at hand.
The matter of his renewal will have to wait, even with his contract expiring in June 2021.
Florentino Perez wants a solution to be found, but talks are on ice for now and the club want to hold onto the one-year policy they have for players of a certain age.
With the No.4 on his back, Ramos will be looking to separate himself from that figure and add a fifth LaLiga Santander title.
