Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos posts gruesome photo of broken nose

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos posts gruesome photo of broken nose

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists he is still "optimistic" as the Spanish giants look to shrug off a poor run of form in La Liga by securing their place in the Champions League last 16.

Real fell 10 points behind leaders Barcelona in La Liga after a 0-0 draw with city rivals Atletico and have won just once in four games. This is a moment of the season, like past year, when some can be anxious.

"As far as I'm concerned, I sit down and chat with players".

Emilio Butragueno, Real Madrid's director of institutional relations, said it was a "bad sign" that Ramos was unable to continue playing after half time.

Goal's Ben Hayward confirmed prior to Saturday's derby that while Real playmaker Mateo Kovacic and goalkeeper Keylor Navas have returned to training, both may require more time to get their fitness back up to scratch. "Tomorrow we hope it is a game to change this".

"I talk to the [younger players], and make sure they know the situation", Zidane said. They're here, they're young.

"There are still many games to go, many points to play for", the Frenchman said. As do [Marcos] Llorente, Achraf [Hakimi], all those who play less.

"It's normal that they play less than other squad players". "What I am anxious about is tomorrow's game, and to play with the squad we have".

Nacho is likely to deputise for Ramos in the heart of defence alongside Raphael Varane with Marcelo and Dani Carvajal either side, although it remains to be seen how long the Spain global is called on to play after coming back into the side at the weekend after six weeks out with a heart condition. It will not be an easy game tomorrow, they are doing well in this CL and we must be very focused and determined, and just think about tomorrow's game.

Gareth Bale missed Saturday's draw against Atletico through injury, but the more pressing concern for Real is the health of captain Sergio Ramos, who is a big doubt for Tuesday's fixture.
