Sergio Ramos becomes a tragic figure

Real Madrid lost a lead against Manchester City in the final phase. Sergio Ramos becomes a tragic figure, and the season is on the brink of collapse before the Clásico.

The departure of Sergio Ramos late Wednesday evening was anything but royal.

Just before the final whistle against Manchester City, the Real Madrid superstar trotted off the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu pitch with his head hanging down.

In the 86th minute of the game, he had seen the red card after an emergency stop. It was the Spaniard’s fourth red card in the Champions League and the 26th in his turbulent career.

According to Cadena SER, the Madrilenians want to protest against the red card. However, the chances of this measure being successful are low.

Eight minutes could cost Real Madrid the season

Eight minutes earlier, the world had still looked splendid for the Spaniard and his team. Real had led 1-0 in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Manchester City, but not all fans and experts believed the weakened royals could do it.

But then Gabriel Jesus scored for the visitors (78th) and Ramos, of all people, had lost the aerial duel – actually his great strength – against the 1.75-metre tall Brazilian. Shortly after that, Kevin De Bruyne (83rd) completed the comeback of coach Pep Guardiola’s Skyblues with a penalty. Real is on the brink of retirement, the season is on the brink of collapse.

“Madrid is threatened with collapse: no trophy, no top of the table and the fall in the Champions League,” was the headline in the house paper Marca.

Ramos sees red after the emergency brake

The remaining hope that the home supporters could still raise at the thought of the return match was dashed when Ramos brought down the passing Jesus just before the edge of the penalty area. A crystal-clear emergency brake, not even the 33-year-old, who is normally in need of information, had any objections.

“Now comes the week of truth,” Sergio Ramos had sounded in the back of his mind before the game against City and with the Clásico against FC Barcelona on Sunday.(La Liga: Real Madrid – FC Barcelona from 9 pm in LIVETICKER)

He did so in his usual role as king of the royals. As captain and leader of the team, which has won the Champions League three times in the last four years, he is responsible for the fighting, on and off the pitch. But in the first act of the Week of Truth, Ramos went down in history as a tragic figure.

Vinicius Junior: “Madrid always comes back”

After the game, it was then others who were responsible for the defiant declarations of war, which are often necessary after such a bitter defeat. “If anyone can catch up, it’s Madrid,” Casemiro said.

Vinicius Junior, on the other hand, recalled last year when Real lost to Ajax Amsterdam in the Round of 16: “Last season we won 2-1 away, but then we couldn’t get any further. It is possible to catch up. Madrid will always come back.”

Even opposing coach Guardiola said after the game: “If any team can come back in a situation like this, this one can.”

One thing everyone agreed on after the game, though, was that making a comeback in the second leg was going to be a damn tough job. “We have to play the perfect game because Manchester City is a great team. It’s hard but not impossible,” said Thibaut Courtois.

Barca at the Clásico at an advantage

But first of all, Real Madrid will have the Clásico. Last weekend, the Real had lost the lead to Barcelona, but with a win, they could once again pass the big rivals by one point.

However, the conditions are better for Barca, who have a much better starting position for the second leg of the round of 16 at SSC Naples with a 1-1 draw and are currently feeling the effects of an upward trend. A home defeat would suddenly put Real five points behind their rivals.

The best thing to say from the Madrilenians: is that captain Ramos will at least get to play in the clásico.
