Sergio Ramos suffered a micro-tear in his right half playing against Athletic Club at the weekend and was forced to come off at half time in his side’s 5-demolition of the Basque side.

The injury however has ruled him out of Spain’s European Championship qualifiers against Slovakia and Luxembourg in the next few days and the 28-year-old will be replaced by Barcelona’s Marc Bartra in the Spain squad for the two qualifiers.

Ramos is also expected to miss Real Madrid‘s next La Liga game against Levante so that he can recover fully and travel to Anfield for the 3rd game of the Champions League group stage against Liverpool.

Also Madrid host Barcelona in the first El Clasico of the season just three days later, and therefore the club will be taking every necessary precaution in order to ensure the defender’s fitness before the two clashes.

Ramos was part of the Madrid side that lost 4-0 at Anfield in the second leg of the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League in March 2009 as the Los Blancos went on to lose 5-0 on aggregate and he would no doubt be looking to seek revenge as the expensively assembled Madrid side face the five time Champions League winners who have made their return to Europe’s elite competition for the first time in five years.

Madrid have won both their group stage games so far in the Champions League and would not want to risk Ramos if they can avoid it as they are favourites to top the group anyway which also includes FC Basel and Ludogrets whom they have already defeated.

A decision on his fitness will be made after waiting to see how his injury develops and it remains to be seen whether he will be able to take part in both the two big games.
