Ramos went off in Real’s 1-0 La Liga defeat by Cadiz last weekend and was also absent as they crumbled to Shakhtar Wednesday in the UCL
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane confirmed that capain Sergio Ramos is set to return from injury when they take on rival Barcelona in El Clasico in La Liga Saturday.
Ramos went off at halftime in Real’s 1-0 La Liga defeat by minnow Cadiz last weekend and was also absent as they crumbled to a depleted Shakhtar Donetsk side Wednesday in the Champions League.
However, he took full part in training Friday.
Despite welcoming back Ramos, Real will be without a number of first team regulars for the trip to the Nou Camp, including Eden Hazard, Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Odriozola and Martin Odegaard.
Zidane has come under intense scrutiny over the last week, with some reports suggesting his job might be at risk should they taste defeat in Catalonia, however the Frenchman insisted he has the full backing of his players and the club’s board.
Barca, meanwhile, have the returning Jordi Alba available for the game, but will be without long-term absentees Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Samuel Umtiti.
