Real Madrid lost without Sergio Ramos?


The Merengue club is not as efficient without its captain and central defender. Good news for Madrid fans, he will be present this Tuesday against Shakhtar Donetsk. 

After the defensive sinking without Sergio Ramos against Shakhtar Donetsk (2-3) on the occasion of the first day of the Champions League, Real Madrid recovered last weekend with its captain on the ground of his rival Barcelona (1-3).

The Spain international even scored his 100th goal with the merengue jersey, a stratospheric performance for a central defender, but which is not surprising for a player already considered one of the greatest in history at his post.

Thus, France Football asked its Internet users on Sunday if Sergio Ramos could already be considered the best defender in history, which made the Spaniard react on his Twitter account.

"The fact that France Football is just asking the question makes me proud," said the Madrid captain.

Not surprisingly, he is among the magazine's selection of the ten best central defenders in history alongside Franco Baresi, Franz Beckenbauer, Fabio Cannavaro, Marcel Desailly, Ronald Koeman, Bobby Moore, Daniel Passarella, Matthias Sammer and Gaetano Scirea.

It is not Zinédine Zidane who would contradict this selection, his Real is dependent on a single player, and his opium is called Sergio Ramos.

His presence on the ground makes his teammates more serene, more confident, tougher like his defending friend Raphael Varane.

Catastrophic against Shakhtar Donetsk, the errors of the Frenchman, orphan of Ramos, had also benefited Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus last season in the round of 16 of the Champions League, especially since he was not helped by the other defenders of the merengue club.

Ramos gets closer to Ronaldo

Before the meeting against Donetsk, Florentino Perez's club had won only one of their seven Champions League games while Ramos was absent.

This statistic proves the "Ramos-dependence".

Besides his defensive qualities, he is also the most prolific defender in La Liga.

This Saturday, he honored this status by scoring the 2-1 goal, transforming a penalty that he himself had caused (63rd).

This precious goal is also symbolic, since it is the 100th goal of the Spanish international with Real Madrid.

By becoming 14th in the ranking of the best directors of the Casa Blanca, the defender finds himself only four units behind the Brazilian Ronaldo.

The presence of Sergio Ramos against Borussia Monchengladbach this Tuesday evening (9 p.m.) could revive Real in the Champions League.

After their inaugural defeat against Shakhtar, the Madrilenians need points and a victory would be welcome to relaunch in a group also composed with an Italian cador, Inter Milan.

We understand better that, despite his 34 years, the management is ready to depart from its policy of thirty (Casillas), by offering a contract extension to Sergio Ramos of one or two years according to the Spanish media AS, which specifies that the Spanish defender has "full confidence" in Florentino Perez to find common ground.

A reward that would be deserved for this great and tireless leader.
