In what looks as if it could be a season of monumentally good news, Real Madrid have been given an injury boost ahead of their World Club Cup final match against San Lorenzo.
Real Madrid’s deputy captain Sergio Ramos scored in the semi final win over Cruz Azul but was said to have a thigh problem after the game. But the player himself has reassured Real Madrid fans that he will be fit for the final after being diagnosed with nothing more than muscle fatigue.
Ramos put himself in the hands of the clubs physios today [Wednesday] and did not leave Real Madrid’s base of operations in Marrakech all day. Club sources said he feels very positive about everything and that coach, Carlo Ancelotti is keeping tabs on his progress.
Ramos should be fit to resume training on Thursday ahead of a game that Real Madrid are heavy favourites to win. We fully expect Los Blancos to bring back the World Club Cup at the beginning of what could be a record trophy haul this season.
There is of course a long way to go. But the way the team is performing right now you can’t see too many teams beating Carlo Ancelotti’s men. Anything can happen in a one off game but Real Madrid are playing with such fluency and penetration that they generally have the quality to beat anyone over 90 minutes.
Real Madrid fans: is this a better side than the 2002 Champions League winners?
