PSG defender Sergio Ramos will almost certainly miss the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie with former club Real Madrid next week after picking up an injury at the end of last month. Sergio Ramos would have loved to face Real Madrid in the first leg billed for the Parc des Princes next week Tuesday, but he can still face the Spanish La Liga giants in the second leg at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu next month if he proves his fitness before then.

Ahead of the French Cup exit at the hands of OGC Nice at the end of last month, PSG revealed that Sergio Ramos picked up a calf injury. It was stated that the Spanish international sustained his latest calf injury in training.

Sergio Ramos has been suffering from calf problems since the 2020/21 season. He has picked up three knocks since signing for PSG last summer thus restricting the veteran to a handful of games for the French Ligue 1 leaders. Since signing for PSG at the start of this season, Sergio Ramos has featured in just five games and he has completed the 90 minutes in two of those five games.

PSG gave Spanish defender Sergio Ramos a two-year deal when they signed him on a free transfer last summer. Ramos was available on a free transfer during last summer’s transfer window after failing to agree a new deal at Real Madrid where he had spent over 15 years. He was the Real Madrid skipper at the time of his exit from the club at the end of last season. During his time in Madrid, Sergio Ramos helped the Los Merengues to win a lot of trophies including four Champions League titles. He was the captain of the Real Madrid team that became the first team to win and retain the Champions League title. They won it in three successive seasons starting from the 2015/16 season.
